SEVEN THUNDERS QUESTIONS ASKED FOR STRIFE
AND DEBATE
Questions Nos. 410 to 429


CHAPTER FOUR


Question #410 :  "Is it necessary to preach against the false thunders often since we know it is false? Why E.O.D.H. books are highlighting this Doctrine more than many other heresies?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Yes precious brother, it is necessary to preach and expose all heresies based upon the thunders, as often as the situation warrants it. This is where Satan's greatest deception is centralized. This is where the false anointed ones have based their main heresies. Satan is trying to stop the program of God for the final outpouring and the rapture by perverting the seven thunders revelation. He has given the majority of the followers of the message a counterfeit revelation, so that they will miss the true revelation when it comes. Any preacher who loves the people, desires to deliver them from deception and keep them looking for the true thunders to be broken to the public, thus E.O.D.H. will continue to expose heresies on the thunders.

Quote W.M.B.: "Now, false teachers will bring false births. True prophets will bring the Word, the birth of the Word, Christ. False prophets will bring false birth, the birth of churches, the birth of creeds, the birth of denominations." (You must be born again 61-1231M P: 92)

Deliverance comes by preaching the Word. We preach in such a forceful manner to bring deliverance to those who are behind ten-inch thick iron bars of interpretation. This is done with the hope of delivering not only the sincere ones that are deluded by false preachers, but also the heretics themselves.
Some people do not know about the thunders. Others have never heard about it, while many do not know what the thunders are for. We highlight heresies so that people can become aware of such falsehood.


Question#411:  "Dear ministers of E.O.D.H. how long are you going to expose heresies of Thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer:  We are going to expose false thunders as long as there is breath in our bodies. We will not hesitate, nor will we deviate. Saving souls are most important to us. It is our business. We have invested our lives and fortunes in the soul saving business.


Question#412:  "Are all Thunders preachers sons of the devil?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: No, not all thunders preachers are sons of the Devil. There are true and false thunders preachers. There are also deceived ones; unknowledgeable ones. Satan has children. They cannot abide in the truth.

"Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve." (John 6:70 - 71).
"Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." ( John 8:44).
"In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother." (1John 3:10).


Question#413:  "Thunders preachers are critics to E.O.D.H. Will their mouths be shut one day when the real Thunders are revealed? Will they not receive the same revelation which you and I will receive?"


E.O.D.H. Answer:  To be a critic one must criticize the truth. Anyone who criticizes what E.O.D.H. teaches is a critic. Their mouths will be shut.
The folly of Jannes and Jambres was exposed. They did not receive the truth that came by Moses after they were exposed? Once there were three notable princes or preachers: Korah, Abiram and Dathan, who thought that they were gifted and had revelations and authority like God's servant, Moses. They took their censers and challenged Moses. They did not receive Moses or his message.
The seventy preachers that were anointed by Jesus did not receive it. No, they left and went away. They had the same opportunity as everybody else. Many will be like Jannes, Jambres, Korah, Abiram and Dathan. Some critics will blaspheme their way. They have a space to repent and if they do not, they will cross the line of repentance like Esau. False thunders preachers who realize their folly early enough and repent will definitely be forgiven. The elect, though caught up in these false thunders traps, will receive the true thunders message and be delivered. Apostle Paul, who was sincere to God and the law, persecuted the church, but was later delivered by a miracle and God's judgment.


Question#414:  "When and to whom will the Seven Thunders be revealed; the Bride or an eighth messenger?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: The Seal was also silent on this fact. Brother Branham did not identify himself as that one, as much as he did not identify another, but he spoke in suggestive terms as follows.

Quote W.M.B.: "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. I don't know. But I have been privileged by God to look and see what it was (See, see?), unfold to that much. Now, that is the truth." (Seventh Seal page 567).

I would be better silent where the Seal and the prophet were, least I find myself interpreting the Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders and wind myself off the beaten track, as thousands have done against his advice and warning.

Quote W.M.B.: "Don't try to put your interpretation to it. You only get further away. Just take my advice, if you believe me now…Don't put your own interpretation to anything. 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…just let your testimony be with love all the time with the people, 'cause if you don't you twist yourself out into something there, and then you're off the beaten track. See, every-time you try to do it, you've done that. See? So just don't try to make no interpretation. And especially tonight, when that Seal becomes up in front of you. Just don't try to interpret it. You just go ahead and just be humble and go right on with the same plain message. You remember, I'm saying this for your good." (Questions and answers on the Seals 24/3/63).

This much I do know, that if any man thinks that he has the seven thunders, it must be in the Word, and it must come God's provided way to the Bride of Christ. Who, where and what, is left to God. When? We can quote him on it.

Quote W.M.B.: "Now, do you notice on the opening of this Seventh Seal, it's also in a threefold mystery. This one I have--will speak and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the seven thunders. The seven thunders in heaven will unfold this mystery. It'll be right at the coming of Christ, because Christ said no one knew when He would return…There'll be seven voices of these thunders that will reveal the great revelation at that time. So I believe, to us who... If we don't know it, and -it won't be knowed till that time, but it will be revealed in that day, in the hour that it's supposed to be revealed in." (Seventh Seal page 575-576).

God has a real program, and I want to be part of it, not mess up the program of God. 7/7/89


Question#415:  "If only six of the seals were opened, which you claim, who then will open the seventh seal apart from a major prophet?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: It is not what I claim. It's the prophet.


HE OPENED SIX SEALS

Quote W.M.B.: "You think that little noise out here in Tucson was something, when He opened the six seals, that shook the country around about and caused the talk…" (Future Home 2/8/64).

Quote: 140 "Seven Angels come down, and said the complete revelation of the six-seal mystery of God would be unfolded. And there it was just exactly like He said, predicted before it happened." (Influence 63-0803E).

Don't cross your bridges before you reach them, you will break your legs. Wait until it is manifested. God is his own interpreter. When the promise is fulfilled, you will see the manifested interpretation.
According to the message, Brother Branham himself said, "I don't know who".

Quote W.M.B.:567 (3) I'm only telling you what I seen and what has been told to me, and now, you do whatever you want to. I don't know who's going to-what is going to take place. I do not know. I just know that those seven thunders holds that mystery, that heavens was quieted. (Everybody understand?)" (Seventh Seal 24/3/1963).

That settles it for me. It is not my business to chase my head. It is my business, to pray, "Lord, when it does happen, give me ears to hear and eyes to see, what I'm supposed to see." So the answer to this question is that I am not going to cross my bridges, before I meet them. God has a program for opening the seventh seal. The prophet warned that if you try to guess at this thing you are going to mess up the program of God, and you will wind yourself off the beaten track and away from the real thing; and that is what thousands have done around the world. They tried to figure out the revelation of the seventh seal and they are messing up the program of God. So it is not my place to say "who and what." It will be broken to the public one day. The prophet of God said that when it starts it will start in secret somewhere, and it will be broken to the public one day, and when it is broken, he said it will be identified. So how the Lord does that, it is His business. Give me eyes to see and ears to hear Lord, when it happens.


Question#416:  "Don't you know it is presuming for you to say that the Seventh Seal is different than the plain Message? The Seventh Seal is the Message of William Branham. On page 459-5 of the seals, he did not instruct the people to "STAY with the same plain message"; rather he said that when the Seventh Seal comes up in front of them to "GO AHEAD…and GO RIGHT ON with the same plain Message!" They were not to avoid the Seventh Seal, they were just to avoid interpreting it."


E.O.D.H. Answer: "It is presumptuous to say, that the seventh seal is the same plain message. This is in direct conflict with the statements of Brother Branham. If that is true, Brother Branham would have said so, and not say that the seal is not revealed, because the plain message was already preached for more than thirty years."


SEVENTH SEAL HASN'T OPENED YET - THAT'S HIS COMING

Quote W.M.B.: "That Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know; that's His coming." (Feast of the Trumpets 19/7/64).


SEVENTH SEAL TO BE IDENTIFIED WITH COMING OF CHRIST

Quote W.M.B.: 182 "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).


SILENCE HALF HOUR, SEVEN THUNDERS, HOW HE IS COMING HE HASN'T REVEALED YET

Quote W.M.B.: 17-3 057 "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…He has showed or revealed it in every type that's in the Bible. (Christ is the mystery 28/7/63).

Quote: 75-3 {49} "These Seven Seals has the Book sealed… Now, that's a different from the Seven Thunders." (The breach 63-0317E).

The above quotations prove that the seventh seal is not the plain message; it's the coming of the Lord.
This statement is taken out of context on the seventh seal message, to mean that he was going to deliver the revelation of the seventh seal that afternoon. It is simply saying, when he speaks of the seventh seal tonight. The seventh seal message is with us for anybody to understand that he said that the seal was not opened."


CHECKED TO STOP, REASON SEVENTH SEAL NOT REVEALED

Quote W.M.B.: 564 (3) Now, I'd better stop right here. See? I just feel checked not to say no more about it. See? So just remember, the Seventh Seal, the reason it was not opened (See?), the reason He did not reveal it, no one should know about it. (New Ed. Page 509 (301-302)). (The seventh seal 24/3/63).


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." (New Ed. Page 512 (322-323)) (The seventh seal 24/3/63).


Question#417:  "Whereas some Message believers feel that the Seventh Seal isn't opened at all and others believe it's completely opened, I believe it is only partially opened. Are you not aware of that?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "The prophet stated nowhere in his message that the seventh seal is partially opened, but he frankly stated: "It is not revealed and he doesn't know it, but it is the coming of the Lord."


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. (New Ed. Page 512 (322-323)). (The seventh seal 24/3/63).


MAKE NO ISM - TO THIS TIME IT ISN'T OPENED,
PROMISED IT WOULD BE OPENED

Quote W.M.B.: 577 (2) "And now, if this tape would happen to fall into the hands of some persons somewhere, don't try to make any kind of an "ism" out of it. The only thing you do, you just continue serving God, because this great secret is so great that God wouldn't even let John write it. It thundered out, but He... knowing that... promising us that it would be opened, but to this time, it isn't opened." (New Ed. Pages 521 (400)). (The seventh seal 24/3/63).

The above quotations proved that there is no reference to Brother Branham saying that it is partially opened. He said and proved by the first fold of the mystery given to him, where the seventh seal revelation was hiding, and it was the coming of the Lord. That is not the revelation of the seventh seal, but it is telling what revelation it is holding.


Question#418:  "The seven thunders were to reveal all the mysteries of God, so that we could understand what the six seals meant, and gave all answers to the Bride's preparation for the rapture, rapturing faith and her revival. If Malachi 4:5:6 did not reveal the seven thunders, what then was his ministry?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: On what tape and when did William Branham detailed that teaching as the revelation of the Seventh Seal/Thunders? I am acquainted with several isolated quotations of Brother Branham that speaks of Seven Thunders for rapturing faith, Bride's revival, and the Seventh Seal is the end of all things. Where did he outline the fulfillment of these promises by the truths of the six seals, and that they are the revelation of the Seven Thunders?
I can find on tape where he declared Seals one to four as the antichrist, fifth Seal as the redemption of the Jews, and the sixth seal as the Tribulation and judgment. What is the rapturing faith, translation power, and Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders hidden in the six seals, or the messages derived from the Seals, for example: Melchisedec, Marriage and divorce, etc.? If the contents of revealed truths of the six seals are the Thunders, why did not Brother Branham identify the Seventh Seal as such, and continue to do so, but on the contrary further established that the Seventh seal/Seven Thunders were not revealed nor preached even until his departure?
Concerning your question, the ministry of Brother Branham is clearly recorded in Malachi 4:5:6; he was the Elijah to forerun the second coming of Jesus Christ. God confirmed that at the Ohio River in 1933 by an audible voice from heaven. Brother Branham later confirmed the same in 1962 when he said,

Quote: "I would speak plainly this morning; I believe that my mission upon the earth is to forerun the coming word, which is Christ." (Spoken word is the original seed 1962).

He opened the six seal mystery

Quote W.M.B.: "You think that little noise out here in Tucson was something, when He opened the six seals, that shook the country around about and caused the talk, wait till this earth receives her baptism!" (Future Home 2/8/64).

Quote: "The seventh angel was to open the six-seal mystery." (Proving His Word 16/8/64).

According to what Brother Branham said on the seventh seal, the seven thunders is the mystery of the second coming of Christ and it was not revealed.

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).

Therefore it is a mystery, singular, not the mysteries of God that were recorded within the Book. Also, on The Breach, he clarified that the opening of the book was different from the seven thunders.

Quote W.M.B.: 75-3 {49} "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 17/3/63).


Question# 419:  "If W.M.B. did not reveal the thunders, who will reveal the new name apart from a major prophet and when?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: That is very simple. There are other people outside of major prophets who received a new name of the Lord before; and this might be foreign to you, but there was a woman who received the new name of the Lord one time. God was going to take on a new name of redemption one time, and an angel came down and said, "Call his name Jesus." So, your thoughts don't always fit the Scriptures.
God had a name one time, an original name. The Old Testament saints knew him by that original name. In Proverbs 30:4 it is written:
"Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?'
Showing you that there was a new name coming one day that the Son would have. And when that new name came it was revealed to a woman. So now, this nonsense about a major prophet for a revelation, is contrary to the scripture. God could use anybody and reveal it to anybody with the required prophetic ability. So, do not tie the hands of Almighty God!


Question#420:  "Shall we look for an eighth prophet, which will run out all the types completely?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: "Shall we look for an eighth prophet, which will run out all the types completely?"


Question#421:  "Don't you know that Brother Branham said that the seventh seal was not opened, just to throw off the people?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: I challenge you to show me one place that the Prophet of God ever uttered such words. You cannot show me that. Hear his statement and tell me if this is a "throw off". When he came to the subject of the seventh seal the Prophet of God said:


SO HELP ME BY GOD I TELL YOU THE TRUTH

Quote W.M.B.: 567-1 {322} "Now, notice. So help me, by God I tell the truth…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 and just what it said. (The Seventh Seal 63-0324e).

Does that sound like a "throw off" to you? This is a man who is deadly honest and he is repeating himself in so many other words to tell you that the seal is not revealed. Now this here is the work of the false anointed ones and these interpreters that were born unto condemnation to misinterpret the truth that came by the seals, so, the only way that they could have their way, is to say that Brother Branham said that the seventh seal was not opened, to "throw off" the people. Brother, if that statement is a "throw off", then the whole message of Brother Branham is a "throw off", and the whole bible is a "throw off". The above statement of the Prophet is just like when Jesus said, "Verily, verily…", truly, truly, absolutely, absolutely, "…I say unto you, ye must be born again." Hear the words of the Prophet, "so help me by God, I tell the truth". In other words he was speaking to the people in the name of the Lord, actually coming to a place of swearing, but he is saying something under oath; "So help me by God I tell the truth that what is under the seventh seal I do not know! I don't know it, I couldn't make it out; I couldn't tell just what it said."
You don't know anything about throwing off people. How does a minister throw off people? He speaks to them in parables and dark sentences. Matthew 13; "I speak to them in parables because they have closed their eyes, seeing they see not, hearing they hear not, and they cannot understand." This is how the Lord hides something. The prophet of God never spoke a parable here. He spoke plainly. He was not saying that to throw off anybody.
Your quotation of throwing off people, does not say anything about the seventh seal.


SAY THINGS IN SUCH A WAY THAT IT MIGHT THIN DOWN - DONE PURPOSELY

Quote W.M.B.: 21 "It's a thing sometime... We have to say things in such a way, that it might thin down, it might bring some to go out, some to leave, and some to ponder over. But that's done purposely. It must be done that way. Then it might be that some would say, "You mean God would purposely do a thing like that?" He certainly did. He does yet. He said one day, when He had thousands around Him; He said, "Except you eat of the flesh of the Son of God, Son of man, and drink His Blood, you have no Life in you."…And the whole audience walked away from Him… And Jesus said that to weed down His crowd (See?)" (Unveiling of God 64-0614M).

There is nothing like the seventh seal in there. He was not relating that to the seventh seal. No, you took that and related it to the seventh seal. When Brother Branham spoke of the seventh seal not being revealed, it was something entirely different.


Question#422:  "After the preaching of the seals, in many places Brother Branham said that "he opened the seven seals"; so how could you say that he did not open all seven seals in 1963?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: That was a terminology Brother Branham used throughout his message; a certain title that he gave to the occasion of the opening of the seals, and in speaking he will say, "The other day when the seven seals were opened." We use the same terminology. When he caught himself he said, "I mean six; he hid one of them from us"

Quote W.M.B.: "Remember the Seven Seals is finished. And when those seven revealed truths... One of them He wouldn't permit us to know… The Seventh Seal, He wouldn't permit it." (Souls in Prison-1963)

Quote: "The seven seals has perfectly been revealed…"

The intellectual will think: "the seven seals have perfectly been revealed", take that, run off and leave the rest. But I will quote the rest.

Quote W.M.B.: "…Waiting now for the seven mysteries right at the last, at the coming of the Lord and the rapture of the church-it might happen before morning." (Warning then Judgment-1963).

Quote: 26-4 "That Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know; that's His coming." (Feast of the trumpets 64-0719M).

On 'Feast of the Trumpets', 'Souls in Prison' and different quotations, he could not say emphatically that the seventh seal was not revealed, and continue to say that right through, until he died, and then when he said seven seals were opened the other day, contradict himself. No. He knew what he was talking about, and when he caught himself he would say, "…one of them he hid from us."


Question#423:  "Isn't William Branham to return for the last seal and seven thunders?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Absolutely not! What gave rise to this heretical "Resurrection doctrine" is the fact that the Ministry of William Branham was incomplete even as Moses did not complete his mission. His unfinished Ministry included the "Tent Vision, the revealing of the seven thunders etc."
Immediately after his death and even before he was buried, there arose rumors and speculations that Brother Branham will arise from the dead to fulfill his unfinished ministry. This heresy is known as "the return ministry", but it is a resurrection cult.
I am sending out a challenge for any resurrectionist to prove by the Word and message that Brother Branham will come up in any kind of resurrection to complete his ministry. Produce to me one Scripture or a single quotation that says Brother Branham will return in a resurrection to complete his ministry. It takes a clown to believe such a heresy, for which there are no Scriptures or quotations.
There is no Scriptural basis for this heresy, but a few misrepresented quotations that are employed to support this heresy or publicly preach it.

Quote W.M.B.: "That same Voice that shall sound when the dead in Christ arise, "For the trumpet... "The trumpet! What is a trumpet? The Voice of Christ, the same One that turned and summoned him up. He heard the Voice like a trumpet. Now He said, "Come up hither!" See how the resurrection will be? It'll be in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye. That clear sounding Voice, and He'll summons the Church, for He's come out of it. That great summonsing Voice! God, help me to hear It that day. As I've often said... I know, as a mortal, Rodney, I know that there's a big dark door setting before me, it's called death. Everytime my heart beats, I'm one beat closer to that door. Some of these days I got to go into it. But I don't want to go in like a coward, screaming and hollering. I want to go in there, wrapping myself in the robes of His righteousness, and know this, that I know Him in the power of His resurrection; that someday when He calls, I'll come out from among the dead." (Revelation, Chapter Four, part 1, page 577-578).

Quote: "I said, 'Look Billy, one of these days you ain't gonna have no daddy to take care of you; Daddy's going to be gone. One of these mornings you'll come in the room and look; perhaps Daddy'll be laying there, and you'll shake him, but he won't wake. I said, 'Then they'll haul me down to this little ol' church in a box. You'll pass by, this handkerchief in your hand, crying. Look down, "There' a member Billy, I've always been an early riser!" Hallelujah! Let the trumpet sound. I'll come forth in the first resurrection. I believe in rising early!" (Uncertain Sound 07/31/55).

"Rising early" does not in the least indicate that he is coming up out of the grave before the rest of the Saints; he specified that the trumpet must sound and then he will come forth in the first resurrection. When the great trumpet sounds all the dead in Christ shall rise, including Brother Branham. (1Thessalonians 4:16).
The above quotations are used out of context and are misplaced and misunderstood. They were grouped together to formulate, project and indicate a resurrection doctrine, but the very quotations used to support a private resurrection of Brother Branham contradicts that doctrine.

Quote W.M.B.: "When he calls I will come out from among the dead." (Revelation Chapter Four).

He expects to hear that voice at the time of the first resurrection.

Quote W.M.B.: "God help me to hear it that day." (Revelation Chapter Four).

"Marvel not at this; for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice." (John 5:28).

There is no place in Scripture where God ever resurrected a Prophet to fulfill his incomplete mission and Ministry, but He used other men to fulfill promises made to such Prophets and God has not changed His Scriptural order in this last day Ministry of Christ.
To believe such a doctrine is to limit God to the flesh of the Prophet which equals idolatry. God's hands were not tied to the flesh of Abraham when he promised him the Land of Canaan; he did not have to resurrect him for the fulfillment of that promise.

"Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." (Galatians 3:16).

The Promise passed on to Isaac and Jacob. All three Prophets died and received not the Promise though it was specified to Abraham, and his seed. However the Promise was sure unto the seed (Galatians 3). Likewise it is sure unto the true seed Bride.
There are only five resurrections that were prophesied in the Scripture, two were fulfilled in Scriptures, three more are yet to be fulfilled.

Firstly - Our Lord Jesus Christ was the only Prophet that returned from the dead to fulfill his ministry, and yet that was accomplished by his Spirit anointing the church and His messengers throughout the seven church ages, because he was the sinless son of God, born by the immaculate conception and it was prophesied of him that his soul should not be left in hell nor his body see corruption. Thus he said, "I have power to lay down my life and power to take it up again."

"For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption." (Psalms 16:10).
"But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave: for he shall receive me. Selah." (Psalms 49:15).
"Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father." (John 10:17-18).

There is no Scripture to indicate and there isn't a promise made about any other Prophet to come back from the dead to preach the Gospel or fulfill any Ministry whatsoever.

Secondly - The resurrection of the Old Testament Saints. (Ephesians 4: 8-10, Matthew 27:51-53). Thirdly - The Bride of Jesus Christ - The first resurrection. (1Thessalonians 4:16, Revelation 20:6). Fourthly - The Two Witnesses to the Jews. (Revelation 11: 7-12). Fifthly - Second Resurrection of just and unjust. (Daniel 12: 2).

The Lord never used the dead, He always used the living. Notice that when Elijah the prophet went away, he did not come back to preach or to continue his ministry, but the Spirit that anointed him came upon another man, Elisha the prophet, who was alive. So too, the spirit of Elijah fell on John the Baptist, a living person. Now, after two thousand years at the end of the Laodicean church age, Elijah, the person, did not come back to fulfill Malachi 4:5&6, but the Spirit that was upon him anointed William Branham, a living person. When Elijah comes to the Jews he will not be the resurrection of those Prophets, - Elisha and John, nor will it be Brother Branham, but he will be a man anointed by the Spirit of Elijah which totals five comings of Elijah. If Brother Branham comes back from the grave to continue his Ministry, that will make it six comings of Elijah. There is no prophecy of a sixth coming of Elijah, and all five comings are perfectly recorded in Scripture. Four comings are fulfilled and the fifth coming is prophecy to be fulfilled (Revelation 11).

No one can produce one Scripture or direct quotation of the prophet which states that he will return to complete his ministry. On the contrary Brother Branham said "if I leave you, I will be leaving you for good" {seals page 567}. Such men cannot see further than the grave.


Question#424:  "Since the seventh seal/seven thunders were not revealed by Brother Branham in 1963, how do the majority of message preachers preach the seven thunders? Great men like Coleman, Vin Dayal, Lawrie, Gan, Santiago, C. W. Woods, and others who were tutored by the prophet, and have known the message for decades? They cannot all be wrong."


E.O.D.H. Answer:  Truth or error is not determined by the majority following a certain doctrine. In so-called Christianity, the Roman Catholics have the greatest following, and their leader, the Pope, is most popular and accepted worldwide, as a true servant of God. The Muslim religion has a quarter of the world's population following their doctrine. Hinduism is hailed as the truth, by the majority in India. Most of the population of China and Japan worship Buddha. Protestantism and Pentecostalism are not far behind in numbers. According to all scriptural authority, they are all wrong, and will form the World Council of Churches, that will be headed by the Pope and Romanism. Likewise, we cannot judge the truth of the thunders, by the majority who claim to be preaching the thunders. According to the message and the written Word, they are wrong, and are the products of disobedience to the very prophet, who they claim to believe.
Message believers and ministers were commanded by the prophet, not to interpret the seventh seal/seven thunders, because, it was not revealed to Brother Branham in 1963, and they were to all await the genuine program of God, for the revealing of the thunders. They have done exactly what the prophet said not to do: "Mess up the program of God concerning the seven thunders/seventh seal, wind themselves off the beaten track," and have found themselves, some of the greatest impersonators that the world has ever seen. This is the work of the antichrist, through the false anointed ones. Brother Branham said that they would come after the opening of the seals, as a type of Jannes and Jambres (False anointed ones in the endtime).


YOU MESS THE REAL PROGRAM OF GOD UP - OFF THE BEATEN TRACK

Quote W.M.B.: 458-6 {12} "Now, take my advice as your brother: Don't put your own interpretation to anything. 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'll only wind your way again away from the thing… just don't try to put any interpretation… just be real humble, be a Christian, and try to live for God, and live honest with your fellowman, and love those who don't love you. 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?... you twist yourself out into something there, and then you're off the beaten track". (Qa. On the seals 63-0324m).

I emphatically state, without compromise or respect to the persons of men, that such men who claim the revelation of the seventh seal/seven thunders, are anointed of Satan, and all their interpretations are of Satan, which presently have God's children "behind ten inch thick iron bars", as prophesied by Brother Branham, whose deliverance was also prophesied. I sincerely believe, that such great deliverance will be wrought by the Third pull ministry, and the breaking of the seventh seal/seven thunders, to the public, by another outpouring of the Holy Ghost. I must also state, with all respect to the ministers of the message, that they were deceived by certain false anointed ones, to believe and preach heresies concerning this great subject. I do not condemn their testimonies, honesty or sincerity. But I affirm, that to preach such doctrines and interpretations of the seventh seal/seven thunders, is wrong.


Question#425:  "Are the seven thunders the seven virtues, as Pastor Coleman propagated, throughout the world?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: No. When the prophet preached the message 'Stature of a Perfect Man' in 1962, he made no mention that the seven virtues are the seven thunders. At the opening of the seals, he made no mention of this doctrine, and needless to say at the preaching of the seventh seal, when the subject of the seven thunders came into view, he made no mention that the seven virtues are the seven thunders. The prophet messenger, stayed with the Scriptures. He did not suggest, indicate, preach or establish, on any of his eleven hundred messages, that the seven virtues are the seven thunders. He could not have done so, because it is unscriptural and that would have made him a false prophet. Therefore this doctrine of seven thunders/seven virtues, is not Brother Branham's teaching, and is neither Word nor message-based.
It is a private interpretation. It's the spirit of error that worketh in the children of disobedience. Someone is responsible for inventing such an interpretation. Full credit must be given to a super spiritual brother name Pastor Joseph Coleman of New York U.S.A. History proved from 1973, that he was the first to preach and establish that doctrine in the United States, and has exported it to the rest of the message world. Though there are thousands of different interpretations on the thunders, basically the foundation was laid by him.
This doctrine is based upon gross spiritual ignorance of what Brother Branham was trying to preach concerning the pyramids. The interpreter, by his religious ambitions, pride, zeal and self-exaltation, overlooked which Pyramid Brother Branham made reference to. It is also built upon an isolated statement, "then the pyramid is capped by the seven thunders". (1962 Is this the sign of the end, sirs). Brother Branham did not preach and establish such erroneous doctrine because of many scriptural reasons.
The virtues of Christ are written in the Scriptures, but the seven thunders were not written in the Scriptures. Unlike the virtues, they were always known to the Christian church and the elect aspired to have them manifested in their lives, for seven church ages. Therefore, they were not hiding under the seventh seal in the seven unknown thunders. And they are not the virtues. If they were the seven virtues, he would certainly have expressed that most vital truth, but he did not. Nobody knows anymore about the thunders than the prophet. Therefore, whoever proclaims that the seven thunders are the seven virtues is wrong, presumptuous and claims to have a greater understanding on that subject than the vindicated prophet, Malachi 4:5&6.
The seven thunders is a "Mystery of God" that pertains to the opening of the seven seals, while the seven virtues are not mysteries, but the divine nature of Christ. Those early Christians possessed those virtues and manifested them in their lives. They never preached about the thunders, for it was a sealed mystery - Revelation 10: 4. "Seal up those thiings which the seven thunders uttered and write them not".
The seven thunders are not the seven virtues, which he preached in 1962, or the Prophet would not have treated it so secretively in 1963, as to say that he, "felt checked to say no more, this is far as we should know and the rest will be revealed about the time of Christ coming and also that it was not revealed to him. So don't make any isms, on the thunders". (Seals Pages 567- 578).
He stated hesitantly, with great care, that the seven thunders "holds the coming of the Lord". Therefore it was not revealed. That revelation is a million miles away from seven-thunders/seven virtues heresy. (Seals Pages 576-578)

.There are three pyramids that Brother Branham, preached about. One pyramid is in Junior Jackson's dream. That's the one that the seven thunders are connected with because it was "the unwritten language in the Capstone that nobody could read".
There is another pyramid, and that's the pyramid of the angels. Each Angel had a seal; therefore the revelation of the Seals was in the pyramid of the angels, but the seventh one was the Capstone of the pyramid. He held the seventh seal that was not given to Brother Branham, the earthly angel of Rev: 3:14, 10:7. The third pyramid that Brother Branham spoke about is the "stature of a perfect man". Concerning this pyramid and the seven virtues, he made no mention on the seal book. He was discussing the pyramid of Junior Jackson's dream, simply because it included the mysterious white rock which was not written on. This represented the seven thunders that was not written in the book. If it was the virtues, Brother Branham could not say that he did not interpret it.

Quote W.M.B.: 578-1 {405} "And you remember, it was in the pyramid where the mysterious white rock was not written on. And the Angels took me into that pyramid of themselves." (The seventh seal 24/3/65).

The interpreters who proclaim that the seven thunders are the seven virtues, and other gross misinterpretations, certainly missed the mark of their great claims. They produced corrupt fruits wherever their so-called bride revival went. Ministers and congregations fell into gross immoralities. Those who claimed that they were sealed by a sealing revival in 1984 fell like the oaks of Bashan and cedars of Lebanon. Both ministers and believers returned to wallow in the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah. This is sufficient to help any sincere heart, deceived by such false hood, to understand that such a doctrine is wrong.
Therefore their seven-thunders/seven virtues claims are Satanic, evident by the fruits they bore worldwide.


Question#426:  "Are the seven thunders revealed by seven men? Are these seven "anointed" men the seven thunders, as Mr. Richard Gan and Junior Jackson taught?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: Absolutely not! The seven thunders are not seven men, especially seven of those who are perverting this message, as these men have done. The Lamb revealed to Brother Branham, that the thunders held the revelation of the coming of the Lord. How could these heretics come up with such a nonsensical doctrine, is beyond me! You have to be reading the message in a language that you do not understand, in order to come up with such a foolish doctrine as that. And that is what has happened to these heretics. They are trying to interpret the seven thunders, which Brother Branham said, was in a language that he himself could not interpret, and if the Lord did not reveal it to his holy prophet, who are these heretics to interfere with it and claim to know it, also? They have to be highly ambitious and proud like Lucifer.


Question#427:  "Brother Branham said on the church ages that the seventh angel will reveal the seven thunders. Why are you saying that he did not reveal it?"


E.O.D.H. Answer: This quotation is found on page 327 of the church ages that was written in 1960, before the seals were opened.

Quote W.M.B.: 327-1 "Now this messenger of Malachi 4 and Revelation 10:7 is going to do two things. One: According to Malachi 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to the fathers. Two: He will reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the seven seals. It will be these Divinely revealed 'mystery-truths' that literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. Exactly so." (Laodicean Church Age).

The church ages were preached in 1960, and the Seals in 1963, three years later, when he dealt with the Seventh Seal and Seven Thunders as a subject, under the greatest anointing he ever preached. He was explicitly conclusive that the seventh Seal was not revealed to him, and that it was the Seven Thunders, which was in an unknown language. (Seals Book page 564 & 567). This conclusion which he maintained for the rest of his life, is evident by his own words, up to 1965.
That statement is nowhere on the Church Ages tapes of Brother Branham. It states that "the thunders are the divinely revealed truths as contained in the seven seals." In other words, they are saying that Brother Branham revealed the seven thunders, and it is hiding in the seven seals book.
Is the thunders the white horse? Is it the red, black or pale horse? Is the thunders the Jews or the tribulation? No! Therefore it is not contained in the seven seals messages. It is the coming of the Lord. The revelation of the seven seals of 1963 and the thunders are two different things. The Church Ages Book says it is the same thing. Brother Branham said it is not.

Quote W.M.B.: 75 (3-4) "The Book is absolutely a sealed Book until the Seven Seals are broken. It is sealed up with Seven Seals. Now, that's different from the Seven Thunders." (The Breach 17/3/63, New Ed. Pg. 66(49).

The contents of the seven seals book are different from the seven thunders, because the seven thunders were not revealed by Brother Branham.
That statement that is made in the Church Ages Book, is not consistent with the revelation that Brother Branham gave, and maintained until 1965.


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." (Seals Book, New Ed. Pg. 521 (393).


MAKE NO ISM - TO THIS TIME IT ISN'T OPENED

Quote W.M.B.: 577 (2) "And now, if this tape would happen to fall into the hands of some persons somewhere, don't try to make any kind of an "ism" out of it. The only thing you do, you just continue serving God, because this great secret is so great that God wouldn't even let John write it. It thundered out, but He... knowing that... promising us that it would be opened, but to this time, it isn't opened." (Seven Seals Book, New Ed. Pages 521 (400)).


WE DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS AS YET, IT'S NOT PERMITTED TO BE BROKEN

Quote W.M.B.: 578 (3) "Now, that is this Seventh Seal. It still is a notable thing. And we…don't know what it is as yet, because it's not permitted to be broken." (Seven Seals Book, New Ed. Pages 523 (407))


SEVEN THUNDERS, HOW HE IS COMING HE HASN'T REVEALED YET

Quote W.M.B.: 17-3 057 "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).


HE HID SEVENTH SEAL FROM US - NO ONE KNEW -COMING OF THE LORD

Quote W.M.B.: 33-3 "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).


SEVENTH SEAL-HE WOULDN'T PERMIT US TO KNOW

Quote W.M.B.: 23-4 076 "Remember the Seven Seals is finished. And when those seven revealed truths... One of them He wouldn't permit us to know. How many was here at the Seven Seals? Just about all of you, I guess. See? The Seventh Seal, He wouldn't permit it." (Souls in prison now 11/11/63).


SEVENTH SEAL HASN'T OPENED YET - THAT'S HIS COMING

Quote W.M.B.: "That Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know; that's His coming." (Feast of the Trumpets 19/7/64).


HE OPENED THE SIX SEALS

Quote W.M.B.: "You think that little noise out here in Tucson was something, when He opened the six seals, that shook the country around about and caused the talk…" (Future Home 2/8/64).

There is only one quotation like that which was slipped into the edited Church Ages Book. You cannot find it in the Church Ages tapes and books that are not edited. I believe that is the work of a theologian, with all respect to Dr. Lee Vayle who did a wonderful work. But there are many things in the Church Ages book that I could prove scripturally wrong and in direct contradiction to Brother Branham's message. And this statement here that you have quoted, that the Thunders are in the Seals, is inconsistent with the revelation of Brother Branham.
The second school of thought, which states that W.M.B. revealed the thunders, was started in 1973 to 1974 in New York, U.S.A., ten years later. The basic and popular thoughts are that, "the seventh seal was preached by Brother Branham mysteriously, and is hidden in the message. The elect ministers and believers must be caught up into that mysterious dimension by inspiration, and catch the revelation." I never read that in all the quotations that covered the seventh seal in its entirety.
I challenge any man, around the whole world, to come and show me one quotation where Brother Branham said the seventh seal or the seven thunders was revealed mysteriously, and we have to be caught up in the dimension to get it. It is not true.
This school started in 1973 to 1974, and gained international recognition, that went through the whole world, but God proved that it was wrong, and anyone preaching thunders and seventh seal based upon that revelation from New York, directly or indirectly, is preaching heresy.
Anybody that wants to support the second school, you are still going to have to answer me one question: "Who broke the silence, and what is his office?" "Who is he?" And when you point out the man, you will have to tell me about the coming of the Lord, because that is the Major revelation. The major revelation of the opening of the seals was the coming of the Lord that was hidden under the seven thunders.
All who claim thunders around the world, God proved them wrong. It went out internationally, and they claimed that it was a Bride's revival, and all turned out into confusion, and they destroyed the holiness message of Brother Branham. That is what their thunders doctrine did. I believe the revelation that Brother Branham gave concerning the opening of the seventh seal: "One fold was revealed; he carried one fold to the grave, and another fold is under the seven thunders, yet to be revealed, and it must be revealed before the rapture takes place."


Question#428:  "Couldn't Brother Branham have had the revelation of the seventh seal/seven thunders without knowing the interpretation of the unknown language? The prophet said on the seal book that 'I had the revelation that revealed it', and on the church ages, "…this messenger of Malachi 4…will reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Revelation 10 which are the revelations contained in the seven seals"?


E.O.D.H. Answer: 
Quote W.M.B.: 557 (4) "And now, as certain as I stand in the platform tonight, I had the revelation that revealed-it's in a threefold manner. That, I will speak to you by God's help of a fold of it." (The seventh seal 24/3/63-New Ed. Page 503 (248)).

He never said, "I had the revelation that revealed it," but "it's in a threefold manner." It was revealed to him that the seventh seal is in a threefold manner. People misinterpret that statement. The prophet of God was given a revelation about the seventh seal, that it's in a threefold manner. One fold he told the congregation, the second fold he kept to himself and the third fold was in an unknown language that he could not interpret.

Quote W.M.B.: "And in Sabino Canyon, He said, "This is the third pull." And there's three great things that goes with it, and one unfolded today, or yesterday, the other one unfolded today, and there's one thing that I cannot interpret, because it's in an unknown language." (Seals Book page 564).

Quote: "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. Then when I seen that, I looked for the interpretation that flew across there, and I couldn't make it out." (Seals book page 567).

The following quotations verifies that Brother Branham did not preach the Seven Thunders up to 1965, as certain as he did not preach the Vials and the Seven Trumpets, but told the church to wait until it is opened.

Quote W.M.B.: " Now, in doing this, I have come here for the purpose of teaching the last vials, last seven vials, and the last seven trumpets, and the last seven thunders of the Book of Revelations, tying them together in this hour that we're now living to follow the opening of the Seven Seals, the Seven Church Ages. So we couldn't get room to do it." (God of this Evil age 1/8/65).

Quote: "Just wait till we get in to open those plagues and seals and them seven thunders." (And Knoweth it not 16/8/65).

This verification and the conclusion of the prophet, that the Seven Thunders was in an unknown language which he could not interpret, form the basis of the following questions:

(1) When did Brother Branham interpret the unknown language of the Seven Thunders?
(2) When did Brother Branham preach the Seven Thunders?
(3) "When did the Lord reveal to Brother Branham the unknown language of the Seven Thunders, to mean that it is the divinely revealed truths held in the Seven Seals?"
(4) When, where and from whom did the Seven Thunders preachers receive the revelation of the Seven Thunders? Maybe you can help me with these questions?

I have not found on tape, the time, place, date or revelation of this most important event. Only such scriptural and message proofs alone, are able to altar the conclusion of 1963 on the subject of the Seventh Seal and Seven Thunders. An outline upon what is the ministry of Malachi 4, Revelation 10:7, like quoting what the ministry of Moses should be: (1) Call Israel out of Egypt, and (2) Take them to the promise land, is certainly inadequate to altar his conclusion. The outline is documented by the Editor, but where is the proof of the unknown language interpreted to mean "divinely revealed truths of the Seven Seals?" The prophet was under obligation to his church and all message believers to declare that he, at a specific time, was given the revelation of the thunders that was hidden from him in 1963 in an unknown language, seeing that he concluded that it was not revealed, and the people were in danger of making isms of the unopened Seventh Seal and Seven Thunders.
For William Branham to have such revelation of the unknown language (Seven Thunders), and whisper it only to the editor, and have message believers worldwide wait for the publication of the Seven Church Ages Book, is not the scriptural order of a prophet. His scriptural policy was evidently demonstrated on the subject of marriage and divorce, when he brought a conclusive revelation as he promised, having previously taught the subject in part. The time, place, date and revelation are identified. Why should the greatest revelation, the Seven Thunders for rapturing faith, lack such identifications? It was in no uncertain terms when he concluded that it was not revealed in 1963.
I preach, believe and establish that the Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders was not revealed to Brother Branham in 1963, and can justify that truth by his own words, date and time, and will appreciate the same proofs of the revealing of the Thunders in his lifetime. An outline of the ministry of Malachi 4:5-6 does not substantiate the claims that the seven Thunders were revealed by the prophet. When? Where? And what? If it is divinely revealed truths of the Seven Seals? Why did he not preach that revelation as the opening of the Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders? What was so secretive about it, seeing he had broadcasted all six seals and their revelation that very week?


Question#429:  "Are not the seven thunders all the mysteries that the seventh angel of Revelation 10:7 revealed?"


E.O.D.H. Answer:  This question is based within the framework of a certain misconception. The thought that is flowing here is that the ministry of Brother Branham was to bring all the messages from the seven church ages, and bundle it together in the end time, and that is the thunders. And if he did not do that then what is his ministry? That is a misconception. Let me tell you what he says that his ministry was:

Quote W.M.B.: "The seventh angel was to open the six-seal mystery." (Proving His Word 16/8/1964).

This is the question answered here. The fulfillment of Revelation 10:7 is fully declared by Brother Branham; the seventh angel was to open the six-seal mystery. That closes the case. Only six seals were opened down in Jeffersonville.

Quote W.M.B.: 576 (5) Now, we have in the completion here now, by the grace of God, all the mysteries of the six Seals that's been sealed up, and we understand and know here that the Seventh Seal is not to be known to the public. (Seventh Seal 25/3/63).

Quote: "You think that little noise out here in Tucson was something, when He opened the six seals." (Future Home 2/8/64).

Brother Branham declared the mission of Revelation 10:7. He simply said, "It was to open the six-seal mystery."

You are thinking that all the mysteries of the seven church ages make up the seven thunders. That is why this question was asked. That is Coleman's doctrine. That is a lie of the devil. You have your roots in Coleman's doctrine, although you may not stand for his principles. You need to turn loose from that heresy. You quoted Revelation 10:7, because in the days of the voice of the Seventh Angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mysteries of God should be finished. So now since Revelation 10: 7 is going to reveal all the mysteries, "that makes the seven thunders." So in your mind, "all the mysteries that the prophet revealed are the seven thunders." That is Coleman's doctrine.


AFTER ALL MYSTERIES FINISHED-THUNDERS IS ONLY THING NOT REVEALED

Quote W.M.B.: "And in the days of the voice of the seventh angel all this mystery that's written within should be finished."…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." (Sirs is this the time 30/12/62)

Quote: 72 "And at the sounding of the seventh angel's Message, all the mysteries of God would be made known. Then come seven mysterious thunders." (Standing In the Gap 63-0623m).

All the mysteries that Brother Branham revealed are not the seven thunders. Brother Branham fully declared that the seven thunders is the coming of the Lord, not the mysteries of the seven church ages. It is the coming of the Lord that was hidden.


SEVEN THUNDERS UTTERED THEIR VOICES-THE COMING OF THE LORD

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).
