THE SEVENTH SEAL MISINTERPRETED – TWO SCHOOLS OF THOUGHTS

 

SEVENTH SEAL / SEVEN THUNDERS PERVERSIONS

 

Letters – second school of thought

 

Summary on subject of seventh seal/ seven thunders – two schools of thoughts

 

Foreword

 

It was Brother Branham’s desire to go through the teachings of the seals again. “ Just got through with those seven seals, just recently. I’d like to go through them again.” (World. Again. Falling. Apart. 63-1127). We embraced that opportunity which time did not afford our beloved Prophet. A rehearsal of the seven seals messages used to take place in the early years after Brother Branham’s departure at the Branham tabernacle, in the form of tape messages. But only a few churches do so today. Bethel church have done so for the past thirteen years and have won many souls to the Lord from different religions and walks of life. Another grand occasion was the fourteenth annual open book memorial services, seventeenth to the twenty-fourth of March 2002, held at Bethel the House of God, Freeport Trinidad W.I. The meetings commenced on Sunday morning 17th with the sound of many trumpets and other musical accompaniments, songs of praise, worship and dances, and general opening remarks praising and glorifying God for the greatest event of the twentieth century which happened in 1963, “the opening of the seals,” by the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, through his Prophet Brother William Branham, who is the literal fulfillment of Malachi 4: 5:6, Rev 3:14, 10: 7.

 

                The occasion was not the opening of the seals, but a memorial and thanksgiving for the opening of the seals, a rehearsal of the great truths, which were proclaimed in 1963, to remind message believers, inform ‘believing’ children, and also to make known to Hindus, Muslims, Catholics and other organizational members, of the great event. In attendance were message believers from North and South America and the Caribbean Islands, Tobago, Grenada, and St. Vincent. Various ministers and pastors were engaged in this most wonderful and edifying exercise as they each rehearsed one of the six seals. Message believers each night, rejoiced in unity, love and harmony on doctrinal teachings of Brother Branham concerning the first six seals.

 

Sunday morning 24th March 2002 marked a different kind of meeting, since the subject on the seventh seal / seven thunders was to be preached. As all are aware, it’s a controversial subject, which has greatly divided message believers, internationally, since 1973, the majority proclaiming that it was revealed by Brother Branham in 1963, and a smaller group attesting that it was not revealed. Both schools of thoughts being present, and the host pastor determined to maintain the same unity, peace, and harmony, which prevailed in the previous days of meetings, was placed in a very odd position and all mused in their hearts and wondered how he will handle such a situation. Then he simply came forward to the pulpit and announced that he was not on the war-part this morning, but will allow Brother Branham to speak to all his children. All major quotations pertinent to the seventh seal from 1962 to 1965 were boldly proclaimed in an anointed manner and the decision left to all believers to understand by the Spirit, what the prophet preached and believed concerning the seventh seal. The facts taken from the seventh seal to the end of Brother Branham’s life in 1965 totaled about forty. However he boldly stated upon the presentation of such irrefutable facts the school of thought, which brother Branham was identified with, and also identified himself with that same school. He avoided offences to the congregation by not asking them which of the two schools are they identified with. Not desiring to speak too much about the second school, he stopped after about three hours, for new converts to be baptized and also performed a wedding ceremony. Peace and harmony did prevail, and a great feast followed, and all dined in love, peace and harmony without arguments or gain-sayings.

               

He returned on 31-03-02 and continued on the subject “seventh seal misinterpreted”. Emphasis was laid upon the second school of thought since there were none present, who belonged to that school. A great historical background of the inauguration of the second school was given, by undeniable proofs. Many witnesses were called upon, who confirmed the same as truth. Many sat in awe, fear, and trembling, as they understood for the first time the origination, principal, teachers, and syllabus of that school.

                Another message was preached on Wednesday, 10-04-02. The contents are of vital importance to every minister and message believer, since it dealt with Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders perversions by the second school of thought. The preacher went into details, and showed by the statements of Brother Branham, what the seven thunders is supposed to produce, and carefully compared it with the production of the second school of thought.

                Book number five entitled  “Exposition Of Damnable Heresies Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders” (two schools of thoughts), is a documentation of the subjects of The facts of the seventh seal, The seventh seal / seven thunders misinterpreted, and Seventh seal / seven thunders perversions. Included are letters revealing conflicts of doctrines between both schools of thoughts. We write with the hope, that these subjects put together will help our readers to understand for themselves, which school of thought is ordained of God and which Brother Branham established in 1963, and supported until the time of his departure. We also hope that this work will afford message believers to examine the school that they are identified with, and quickly change their position if they are in the wrong school.

DREAM OF THE HOUSE OF HELL

 

24   “ I had a dream, the other morning. I don't dream very often; I'm not a dreamer. But I dreamed that I seen a man, a young fellow in shackles, he was trying to get out, and--and I said... Somebody told me, said, "Those are horrible people; don't have nothing to do with them." And I seen this young fellow getting out of his shackles, so I just let him alone. I thought, "I'll just see what he does." So he got out, and he was a nice fellow. I seen others trying to get out.

 

Now, this is only a dream. And I walked over this a-way and I seen a Brother Roy Borders, a very good friend of mine, lives in California. Looked like there's something wrong, his eyes was half closed, and great big--maybe cancer or something over his eyes. Now, someone was trying to pull me away from him. I screamed, "Brother Borders, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, snap out of that." And he just barely could speak, saying, "Brother Branham, it'll have to take something more than this. I just can't grasp it, Brother Branham. I just can't grasp it." I said, "O Brother Borders." I love him.

 

 And someone pulled me away, and I looked, and it was a lady standing over here. When I was a little boy, I used to haul groceries from the grocery store to the people. And her name was Mrs. Fenton; she lives in Jeffersonville yet: a personal friend to the wife and I. And she said, "Brother Branham, deliver us from this." Said, "This is a house of hell." And said, "You've been misunderstood. "And said, " And you misunderstood these people too." Said, "These are fine people. "I looked over there, and like a great big cellar, or big walls, down beneath a great big cave, and great iron bars, eight or ten inches thick. And people, out of their mind, twisted arms and legs, beating their head like that. And she was crying, saying, "Deliver the people, Brother Branham." Said, "Help us; we're in trouble. "She herself, I know her, she belongs to the--I believe the Church of Christ, or the Christian Church, called Church of the Brethren. .

 

 I looked around, and I said, "I wished I could." And go on, looking around…My little, bitty body and them great, big iron bars, and those poor people in there, and you couldn't get to them, them iron bars was setting close together. And I looked, and they were beating their head like they were out of their mind.

 

And I seen some lights flickering around in there. And I looked up, and there stood the Lord Jesus with the 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 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 the rocks a-rolling, and bars a-falling; and people running, screaming, "Delivered!" and screaming at the top of their voice, and was all delivered. And I was screaming then, "Brother Roy Borders, where are you? Where are you? God is delivering His people. Where are you, Brother Borders?" I've wondered about that.” (Works is Faith Expressed 26/11/65).

FACTS OF THE  SEVENTH  SEAL

ORIGINAL AND MOTEL ROOM MESSAGE

MARCH 24TH  P.M. / & 25TH , 1963

 

˙ Thank you Saviour. Blessed be your Name O Lord. Thank you for your Spirit this morning. Thank you for our gathering from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south. Thank you for the gathering of both the saved and the unsaved, visiting brethren from different churches. We give you special thanks for the gathering of message believers today. Bless, O Lord, those that have come from near and far. Bless Brother Waldron and his group today, and bless our brethren from around the country, in this last day of our meetings. We pray that you would look down upon those that have come from U.S.A., Guyana, St. Vincent, Grenada, Tobago. Give them a special blessing, and may you so bless the Word today, that it might leave an impression upon every heart, that when we have come to the end we would say, “didn’t our hearts burn as he spake to us on the way.”

 

˙Now Lord we pray that you will bless and undertake this morning; and we humbly thank you for your Spirit that is already attendant in the meeting and amongst a happy bunch of people this morning. We are certainly a happy people because of Calvary, and because of the opening of the seals. Bless, oh Lord, your servant this morning and bless your people. Give us a hearing ear and an understanding heart. Help us to be honest and sincere in our approach, as we let the messenger speak to us this morning, for we pray and ask these blessings in Jesus Name, for his honour and glory, and the congregation say [Congregation says, “Amen!”] amen. We praise the Name of the Lord.

 

˙Trying to save some time this morning. And the scripture says over here in Revelation 8:1; (somebody may never know the scripture that exist in the Bible, came from some organization, never heard it.) Always remember, somebody never heard. And we read this one verse concerning the seventh seal: 8:1.

 

“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.” (Revelation 8:1)

 

˙That is all that this seal said - there was silence in heaven for the space of half an hour. Not a trumpet sound, not an organ play, not a piano play; so they don’t suppose to play this morning in reading this scripture. But they could play for the next one. So in Revelation 10 it is recorded:

 

“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.

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

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).

 

˙Lift your hands to Him. Give him a praise offering. Thank you Saviour. Blessed be the Name of the Lord. We give you the glory, the thanks and the honour that is due unto your Name today Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ we pray with thanksgiving. Amen! You may be seated.

 

˙And it’s a grand privilege to be back in the House of the Lord. Yes. And we have a smiling congregation this morning. Everybody dressed up and happy, and I’m happy to look upon your faces today in the preaching of this message this morning. I tell you, if there is anybody that is supposed to be happy, we are supposed to be happy that believe this message and contend for this message. We are a blessed people. Yes my friend.

 

˙Certainly am grateful to the Lord to have had each one of you brothers and sister from abroad in the meetings; from the United States and different places, and you people that attended from the churches: Pentecostals, Baptists, wherever you came from; people that don’t even know the Lord Jesus Christ; may the Lord bless you and grant you the desires of your heart. May he cause His face to shine upon you even this morning, and grant you life. May the Lord bless our brethren that came, support this message, and believe this message for many years; and we are grateful for your support in whatever way, for how many days that you came; we are grateful to the Lord.

 

˙And a special thanks to Brother Waldron who preached for us, and who had his congregation come from night to night, in part, and I believe all are here this morning, and we are grateful. So we want to thank you Brother Waldron for coming and supporting these meetings.

 

˙And it has fallen my lot this morning to speak on the subject of the Seventh Seal. And I will approach this subject in a manner, very simple, very understanding. We are gathered here this morning in peace, and this morning is not going to be a war zone. We maintain peace, we maintain unity, we maintain love. We invite all our brethren to come here to worship the Lord, and help to win somebody to the message, and to fellowship; and we would keep that atmosphere.

 

˙So this here is a very controversial subject, and the Lord has given me the understanding how to handle it this morning in a mixed audience. And I think that I will want to use this same method, if He will be willing, if I will speak to one million followers of the message, I will want to approach it the way that I approach it this morning.

 

˙So our subject is on the Seventh Seal this morning, and for somebody who may not have been here, I’ll spend two minutes with them. So if you don’t want to hear that you could block off your ears. No problem. But my beloved that came for the first or the second time; Christians looked for the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for almost two thousand years, and it was promised in the scriptures that He would send a prophet called Elijah the prophet-that is found in Malachi 4. And then, just before the second coming of Jesus Christ, like He sent John the Baptist the first time, He would send a second prophet, anointed by the Spirit of Elijah. That same prophet fulfilled the scriptures of Revelation 10:7: “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” That angel was not a flying angel, but that angel was a messenger, which is a man. And he came, and the promise in the scripture is that he was going to reveal all that was written in the Book, which were already declared in dark sentences and parables, and great mysteries in the scriptures, that were recorded in the Book. The Scripture said that he was going to reveal all the mysteries as it was declared unto us by the prophets.

 

˙So the revelation came to the prophets, and some they never understood, and they wrote their revelations in mysteries and parables. Like Moses wrote about a woman eating the fruit in the garden, and Daniel saw some mysteries, and he said, “I saw but I understood not,” but they wrote them down. And then John saw many mysteries; he was a prophet indeed and an apostle, and he did not understand all of it, but it was declared by the prophets. So Revelation 10:7 was to come in the end-time and reveal the mysteries that were declared by the prophets, and the mysteries that were declared by the prophets were in the book, written. Therefore brothers and sisters, this prophet was to arrive here before the second coming of Jesus Christ; and don’t matter what kind of a Christian you are, you must heed the voice of this prophet bringing the revelation of these mysteries, and catch a revelation of Christ in the end-time before you go in the rapture.

 

˙So we are saying that in the Book of Revelation, chapter five, the mysteries that lock the whole book together were under seven seals, and that is what these meetings are about, and we preached for the past seven days, and this here is a rehearsal, not the opening of the seals, but the rehearsal. But in 1963 the Lamb of God, your Jesus, my Jesus that we worship, He opened the seven-sealed book according to Revelation 5 and 6, and chapter 10. So He opened that book and revealed the seals thereof, and handed it down to His humble prophet called William Branham. That happened in Jeffersonville, Indiana, in the month of March 1963, and he broadcasted those seals, and we have those seals, that were revealed, in a book, and we heard that revelation through tapes and through books, and we continue to declare that revelation that came from the seals, along with eleven hundred and some tapes, yes, all the messages of God, sent to us today.

 

˙So we are those people that are identified with the Lamb, and are identified with the open Book. That is why we have an open Book memorial and thanksgiving. So we are not ashamed of that; we are identified with the prophet that God sent, called William Branham; and we don’t worship this man, he is not our Saviour and Lord, but he is the prophet of the Lord; he is Jesus’ prophet that Jesus sent to us, and we believe his message. So we are not ashamed; we believe Brother Branham to be the last and seventh church age messenger to the world. We believe his message from cover to cover.

 

˙And we are at our last seal today, because we preached six of them throughout the week, and we are at our last seal today, Sunday morning. So it has fallen my lot to speak on this seventh seal this morning, and we have a little problem here, and that is, “all message believers agree that six seals are revealed by the Lamb, Christ, since 1963. There is no discrepancy and there is no problem with the first six seals. Everybody is in unity that six seals are completely broken. What I am saying is there are no divisions on that, except one or two fanatics around the world, who said that that was not the ministry of Brother Branham, and therefore he was not Revelation 10:7, he was not Malachi 4, but that they are that one. But generally, far as six seals goes, everybody believes that six seals were completed, but concerning the seventh seal, amongst the followers of the message of the hour, Brother Branham, there are two schools of thoughts; and the two schools of thoughts concerning the seventh seal, and the opening of the seventh seal, is that one school of thought said that it was revealed by Brother Branham in 1963, and they preach a certain revelation that they think was revealed from the seventh seal. The first school of thought says that it is not opened. So here we have discrepancy, here we have division on this seventh seal.

 

˙One school of thought believes that the seventh seal was not opened in 1963. The second school of thought believes it was revealed in 1963 by the Lamb, and by Brother Branham. Now you could see and understand that we have two schools of thoughts, mainly two schools of thoughts, and one says it is open, and another says it is not opened.

˙Now this first school of thought that said it is not opened, and it was not opened in 1963 by Brother Branham, that school was inaugurated in 1963. That school opened up in 1963. The second school of thought that says it is open was inaugurated ten years later in 1973, which proclaimed that it is revealed; and although that second school of thought was opened up in 1973, some enrolled in that school later than 1973, 1974, 1975, 1980, 1984, 1985, 1990, and the school is still open for enrolment. So now I will say that both schools are open for enrolment.

 

˙Now present amongst us are witnesses of this fact that I just proclaimed concerning both schools. Amongst us are ministers and believers old enough to know what I am saying, and had long standing in the message to understand that there was one time, around the world, and around this country, everybody belonged to the first school. Now I am subject to correction, and I pick up this as a challenge to my testimony and my confession, upon the basis of the witness of ministers and believers present here today, that there was one time in the world that all message believers believed that the seventh seal was not opened by Brother Branham in 1963. There were no divisions concerning that. There was no fussing concerning that. There was no ministers’ meeting called where ministers fussed about whether it was opened or whether it was closed. There were no debates.

 

˙I am the one that started the ministers meetings in this country, and it started on account of a doctrine called the latter rain, where people could not decide whether the Latter Rain fell or not. We played half of a tape, and an argument started, and up to now they did not come to a conclusion. And ministers meetings continued right along, and the more that ministers gathered together is the more divided they became; and in all those meetings nobody ever brought up the question or disagreement that the seventh seal was opened or not opened. None!

 

˙We have ministers here as witnesses. We have the oldest man here in the message, the first one that ever accepted Brother Branham’s message, called Daniel Seebrat, who came to this message in 1964. I cite him as a witness. Brother Jackson has long standing in this message. Do you know that to be true Brother Jackson? I don’t know if Brother Waldron remembers? Right. We once all believed that the seventh seal was not opened by Brother Branham. We had peace right along, and it never did come up as a question.

 

˙The next school of thought that opened up, opened up in 1973 to 1974 all the way. I bear witness of this truth, and humbly challenge the world upon the testimony that I give here, that the first school of thought that said that the seventh seal is not opened, existed from 1963, and it continued until 1973 around the world. All the preachers that ever came to this country from the United States and around the world, never mentioned seventh seal, never mentioned seven thunders, because they all shared the same view. They came from all parts of the world; they preached to me and the ministers, and I preached to them. Not one at any time ever preached on the seventh seal or seven thunders; and when any questions arose, we all had reverence and respect, because we all shared the same view; and the view was very simple that we shared, and that is, “the seventh seal was not opened by Brother Branham in 1963.”

 

˙We as ministers in this country, we mused in our hearts and wondered that when that seal comes open, what is it going to be. And when we start figuring out a few little things, we used to become very scared, and say that we are afraid that we go into a delusion, and some kind of a spirit get upon us. And my companions that I used to muse with; some of them I lead to the Lord; and there were many other ministers around the country that I used to associate with; preached on their pulpits and established their work, and set them up in their congregations; and we never had a dispute on seventh seal nor seven thunders. We respected that; we revered that. We had one vision, and the vision was that it will be revealed one of these days; up to 1973 and 1974. That is ten years of silence concerning the seventh seal and the seven thunders.

 

˙I must mention here that there was one man that arose in about 1966, right down to 1968-1969, and he came a little close to the revealing of the thunders. His name was Lawrie; a man from India, who had a great healing campaign, and he had books that were sent out that I used to receive, and on his books he had a photograph of Brother Branham hugging him, and he hugging Brother Branham, and he put over the heading there, “When the east and west met together.” Now that man claimed to have been the coming of the Lord, but yet did not specify seventh seal nor seven thunders, that I could remember. He just claimed to be the Lord Jesus Christ incarnated in human flesh, which is antichrist.

 

˙He set a date for the rapture in 1972, in January. He took a bunch of people to India…oh it would take too long brothers and sisters…but clouds of smoke appeared over the houses of people that accepted his revelation, and thousands of people left America and went down to India; and there was a halo around the man’s person, right through, and he had a photograph, and a pillar of light was accompanying him, not like the one Brother Branham had; just a halo over his body. And I used to receive his books in that time. And that man, although so great, he never claimed to have the seventh seal. I’m trying to show you ten years of silence.

 

˙That man, he came to this country in the mid sixties, preached and testified; I’m talking about Lawrie. He later claimed that there were three hundred people in a tent, and then he said that he had the third pull. By the click of his fingers, three hundred people got up and they were healed, including a crippled cat; and then he came against Brother Branham’s ministry. He said Brother Branham’s ministry was a baby ministry because Brother Branham had to see things before he do it, but he don’t have to see anything. Brothers and sisters, when I got his book and I opened it up with all those pictures, and I see him come against Brother Branham, I said, “This man is a false prophet, have nothing to do with him.” Any man that will come up against the message of the hour is a false anointed one! And any man that will belittle Brother Branham, he is Antichrist! He never impressed me a moment.

 

˙And in January 1972, there was another man that passed by; his name was Robert Lambert. He preached to us in Diego Martin, and I saw him come up to the pulpit; he said, “Thus saith the Lord, Lawrie is a false prophet. There would be no rapture take place in January twenty sixth, only I worry how those people are going to go home when his prophecy fails.” Reports are that Lawrie went mad and he was committed to an insane asylum, and the people scattered. Any movement that is not of God, brothers and sisters, will come to naught. This is the glorification of our Lord Jesus Christ, not the glorification of a man.

 

˙I want you to fully understand, regardless of all the rumours that you heard of the man called Robert Lambert, I fully declare that he was my pastor, and I know what I know, and I believe him to be a true servant of Jesus Christ. That might be a little contrary to the rumours that were spread, but that is what this church stands for. We stand for him as a servant of God, and I believe he died as a martyr in defence of this message. I am not here to preach Lambert today; I am on a greater cause.

 

˙So I am just here to tell you of the schools of thought, and I used those things to show you that everybody once believed that the seventh seal was not revealed, and the seven thunders was not revealed; and may I mention here that where we got our facts for ten years, to support that belief and doctrine, was right in brother Branham’s message. Can I repeat that? There were ten years of silence where nobody, no minister, no believer internationally, nobody claimed that it was revealed; and where we got our facts from; we got our facts to support that understanding and doctrine right in the pages of Brother Branham’s message, and more so the seventh seal.

 

˙In 1973, it is left to be understood, and I have asked men around the world, “What broke the silence? After ten years, what broke the silence? Who broke the silence? And by what authority they broke the silence?” I am still waiting for the answers. We are not on a warpath this morning-I am presenting facts. I am, brothers and sisters, going to present these facts to you, and you would draw the water out of it, and every man is going to eat according to his eating; he is going to gather according to his eating.

 

˙Now both schools of thought, and when I say schools of thought, I believe it’s very simple; one says it is not revealed and the other say it is revealed. For ten years every body in the message said that it is not revealed. I am waiting for the answer, “who broke the silence, and by what authority was the silence broken?”

 

˙This day, my brothers and sisters I am to speak to a people that belong to both schools. In our midst today there are people that belong to both schools. I appreciate each one of you. I am to speak to people who belong to both schools of thought. I must maintain the atmosphere of peace, and atmosphere of love and unity which prevailed for the past seven days, and at the end of this, we must have a feast and we must eat in peace. So now this is not a war-like message; there are places for that and there is a time for that.

 

˙Now this same subject, I have preached it before, on the warpath, and later on I may preach this same subject on the warpath, but that is not the kind of meeting this morning. We are not approaching the subject this morning in that way. I would not use one of my styles of an argumentative approach. Now, I would approach this morning in a way of examining these two schools of thoughts, and let every person draw from the fountain. So I feel led of the Lord this morning to examine both schools of thoughts.

 

˙Now the only way that we could examine both schools of thoughts is not by me, nor if I bring Brother Waldron here, or if I take up some smart fellow from the congregation. My brothers and sisters, although we belong to two schools of thoughts here this morning, we recognise one authority on the scripture: first of all the Lamb, and second the man who was used by the Lamb, called Brother Branham. So Brother Branham was used by the Lamb, and we recognise that authority. It does not matter what a man preaches in this message, he looks to William Branham as the authority. And if we have five of us fighting here on something, all five of us will quote that authority; we will quote that authority. Now you have three children fighting in the house, and they cannot agree on a particular principle; every one of them is going to say, “I am going to tell Daddy.” Now they recognise an authority in the house; the day will come when daddy’s word is going to settle the dispute. Now when daddy’s word settles the dispute, then everybody must be contented and quiet.

 

˙So we recognize William Branham, God’s servant and prophet, fulfilling the scriptures of Malachi 4, and mightily used in receiving the opening of the seals from the Lamb, as the recognized, God sent authority; therefore, my brothers and sisters, we are going to go straight to the authority of God, ordained of God, and I challenge you to believe him. If one school is right, stay in it, and if the next school is right according to the words of William Branham, then belong to it. Can we have peace? Can we have love under those conditions? Can we have unity under those conditions? Can we eat our food in peace? Can we still be one after the meeting? [Congregation says, “Amen!”] Amen. Only, my brothers and sisters, that we must approach this subject in prayerfulness. We must approach it in sincerity. We must approach it in honesty, humility, and through adherence to the words of Elijah the prophet. This is absolutely necessary. Therefore I would not inject my thoughts and my ideas into the seventh seal this morning, I am going to project the thoughts of William Branham whom we all recognise.

 

˙While I do so, there is no need to say, “Amen,” if you disagree with the things that I will quote, and it does not fit your school. I am not an “Amen” preacher. I learned through many years to preach without an “Amen,” amongst many Baptist people, in the square. I am like the Baptist man; and the Baptist man stands up there and preach for three hours and nobody listens. He is not built up on an “Amen.” That’s a bad training for me; and I train my ministers, “do not depend upon “Amens”, and don’t beg the congregation for “Amen,” because you’re going to end up somewhere where you get no “Amen.” I preached in certain hard situations, and I say, “None of you here are saying ‘Amen,’ you Baptists, Pentecostals and Methodists, but I hear the angels of God say, ‘Amen’.” The lord came and subdued and I baptised a good bunch of them. Oh yes!

 

˙So we approach. There is no need to say, “Amen,” if you disagree. I would not be rebuking. I would not make you uncomfortable this morning. No. It’s not a war zone this morning. Now the same preacher you see dealing in peace this morning, there are other grounds, and when I have to be militant, and come against a heresy or false doctrine, then I have not shunned to declare the Gospel of Christ, and the whole council of God.

 

˙So my approach this morning, to maintain the peace and stability in the congregation, understanding, love, and to have a nice supper, is that I have grouped together, with the help of a wonderful brother of mine, who is more to me than a secretary, all the facts that pertain to the seventh seal, which you as the congregation probably never heard in a nutshell.

 

˙I have grouped all facts together from the message of Malachi 4, basically from 1962 to 1965, when the subject of the seventh seal was first mentioned by William Branham, and I am going to start from scratch. I will expect you that belong to both schools, to draw from it, because it will be the inspired words of the prophet. Probably you never looked into it. Probably you just took it for granted. So I will be doing a lot of reading. I asked you to bring out your books this morning, and we have a little problem, and that is, this is an old seal book that I got in the mid-sixties (I still have it). Since that time they printed another book which reduced the pages by almost about fifty three (53). I will quote, however, from my book, and if you have a new version, I will also quote the page on your new version. Would that be all right? [Congregation says, “Amen!”] So you could follow.

 

˙Now in this speaking here, I will be quoting Brother Branham, and the pages which do not pertain to the seals, I will abbreviate, just to be honest with you, and let you know that page so and so, and page so and so, only spoke of two visions. But then I will be quoting right down the line to prove my points.

 

˙Now when we hit the seventh seal from the seven seals book, I numbered it for convenience. The title of my message is “Facts of the seventh seal,” and I am going to draw from the seventh seal, only the seventh seal I numbered, and the messages that followed; and I numbered facts number one, two, three, and onwards, of the things that Brother Branham was saying; and if you think, as the congregation, that I misused a fact that Brother Branham brought or established, or I misread it, if you want to speak to me, all that you will have to say is, “Brother Bruce, fact number ten, I think that you are off on that, and you did not quote it right,” and then we could have a friendly discussion. I do not argue. And if you think that you disagree with the way that I emphasize it or preach it or establish it, and you think that that is not what Brother Branham is saying on fact number 10, fact number 15, fact number 25, then I would want you to jot that down, and say, “Okay, Brother Bruce went off on Fact number 10.”                                                                                                 

 

˙So, we have some university graduates here, and I do not understand English like them, neither can I read English like them; and I am going to ask them to watch me carefully (Brother Koo; and we have a lawyer in here; Brother Mitchell), and with your understanding from the university, if I misread English, then you could correct me on English, that I did not understand English properly. So I give you that duty this morning.

 

˙So the quotes that I grouped together is taken from “Sirs is this the time?” (when this was first spoken of seventh seal to be opened), “Seals Book – Questions and Answers,” and “The seventh seal” where Brother Branham dealt with this as a subject. Also I pulled out there, various quotations from 1963 to 1965, pertaining to the seals. (I have only numbered the seventh seal facts 1 to 40).

 

˙Okay! So here I am. It will take a long time, sometimes, for you to find your page when I get to the seals in a minute, but I will start from the beginning. It’s a picture that I want to paint. Bear in mind that nobody preached seventh seal, nobody preached seven thunders, and there was ten silent years up to 1973. The silence broke, and I am trying to find out who broke the silence, and what broke the silence, and I cannot find the answer. Maybe I might find that answer this morning as we study the inspired words of William Branham.

˙In 1962 prior to the opening of the seals, on the message “Sirs is this the time”, Brother Branham having a vision of a great blast of thunder, being uncertain of its interpretation and fulfillment, preached that message under questionable circumstances as borne out in the title, because he was not certain about what was going to take place. However on the following quotations he emphasized that the mysteries that were to be revealed by the seventh angel were contained in the seals. He laid much emphasis that the seventh angel would reveal all the mysteries that were written in the Bible, after which there would be only one thing left that was not revealed, which would be the seven unwritten seals or seven thunders. He called it “the seven unwritten seals,” which term he never used at the preaching of seals, nor after that, until his departure in 1965.

   SIRS IS THIS THE TIME? 30/12/62   

Brother William Branham

 

 

WHEN WRITTEN MYSTERY REVEALED, THE UNWRITTEN

LEFT TO BE REVEALED

 

Page 37-3   102   Notice, Revelations 5:1. Listen at this now. And I saw in the right hand of him that set upon the throne a book written within... (The writing was inside.)... and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. Now, there's writing on the inside of the Book, but the backside had seven seals on the back of it that wasn't written in the Book. Now, this is the revelator talking: John. Now, remember, it wasn't written in the Book. "And in the days of the voice of the seventh angel all this mystery that's written within should be finished." It should be taken care of in that day. Now, do you see what I mean? Are you following me? Then is the time for the seven voices of Revelations 10 to be revealed. When the Book is finished, there's only one thing left, and that is the seven mysterious voices of thunder that was wrote on the backside of the Book that John was forbidden to write... 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.

^Top^

 

MYSTERY FINISHED, COMPLETED, THEN SEVEN VOICES

REVELATION 10 REVEALED

 

Page39-3   106   Now, when he begins to sound, the mystery will be finished. Now, note. Then it's time for the seven sealed voices of Revelations 10 to be revealed. Do you understand? When all the mysteries of the Book is completed, and the Bible said here that he would finish the mysteries....

BOOK IS COMPLETED, THEN TIME FOR SEVEN VOICES, REVELATION 10

 

Page 43-2   115   Now, look, when it is time for the seven voices, then it's time for the seven Voices when the Book is completed of Revelations 10 to be revealed.

 

^Top^

REVELATION 10:1 HEVEANLY ANGEL, COVENANT,

NEXT ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Page45-7   123   Now, listen. This Angel come down from heaven. See, the other seven angels of the seven churches was earthly messengers, but this Angel... All the message is finished. The seventh angel winds up the whole thing. And this Angel comes, not to the earth; He isn't a man from the earth as the messengers to the church ages; that's finished. But this Angel brings the next announcement. And a angel means a messenger. And He comes down from heaven clothed in that Pillar of Light, cloud, with a rainbow over His head. And a rainbow is a covenant. It was Christ, with one foot on land and one on the sea, and swore that time will be no more.

 

˙Brother Branham went to the desert of Arizona where he was picked up bodily by seven angels that took him up in a cloud that they formed, twenty-six miles high, and thirty miles across the sky and was told to return to Jeffersonville for the opening of the seals. Brother Branham preached eight consecutive messages, six of them being the seals numbers 1 to 6, and abruptly stopped to answer questions on the seals. Many, no doubt, expected him to preach the seventh seal that morning of March 24th. Instead, he came to the pulpit and gave his audience a stern warning, that they should not put their own interpretation to anything pertaining to the seals, especially when he preaches the seventh seal that same night.

   QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON

THE SEVEN SEALS

Brother William Branham

 

SEVENTH SEAL NOT IN SCRIPTURES, COMES DIRECTLY FROM HEAVEN

 

457 (4) …And we're now coming up to the last Seal tonight, the Lord willing. And it's a very mysterious Seal, because it's not even mentioned in the Scriptures nowhere, no symbols, anything to hold on to. It's got to come right direct from heaven. See? (New Ed. Page 409 (4))

 

HOLY SPIRIT BREAKS SEAL

 

458 (3) Now, their hearts are all set. What is these Seals? Their

attention. What is it? Night by night when I come in here there's such a tension,

till I have to talk about something else to kinda get it quietened (You see?), and then the Holy Spirit breaks forth the Seal…( New Ed. Page 410 (8)).

^Top^

 

 

CONGREGATION DON’T GET IT, NOT SUPPOSED TO GET IT, DON’T TRY TO INTERPRET, YOU GET FURTHER AWAY

 

458 (4) And then also knowing that right among you, things are happening (See?)  I know that you don't see it. See? I'm just positive that you don't see it. See? And you say, "Brother Branham, that's a hard thing for you to say that." I know it is. But look; let me just say this now. I suppose this is just tapes for ourselves and so forth. But let me say this (See?), that you don't get it (See?), and you're not supposed to get it. So don't try to interpret anything. See? Don't try to put your interpretation to it. You only get further away.

458 (5) Just take my advice, if you believe me now. If God has give me favor in your sight and you know that them revelations and things... I've been here with you a long time, and it's always been right. And now, to double prove it right, it hooks right in with the Word. See? So you know it's THUS SAITH THE LORD. That's exactly. See? It's proved to you.(New Ed. Page 410(10-11 )).

^Top^

 

DON’T INTERPRET, WIND YOURSELF FROM REAL THING:

I KNOW MYSTERIOUS HAPPENING

 

458 (6) 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. And all of you are conscious and know that there's something mysterious happening, and it is happening, and I know what it is now. (/New Ed. Page 410 (12-13)).

 

TREMENDOUS, MYSTERIOUS HAPPENING GONE,

NOT A WAY FOR YOU TO SEE IT

 

459 (1) I'm not saying that. It's the grace of God that lets me know what it is. It's something that's tremendous, and it's gone right now, and there's not a way in the world for you to see it, But so help me, with this Bible in my hand, I know what it is.

459 (2) It's been told to you before, so just don't try to put any interpretation but just believe me as your brother (See?); we're living in a great hour. (New Ed. Page 410 (13)).

 

MESS THE REAL PROGRAM OF GOD UP

 

             459 (3)…you 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? (New Ed. Page 411 (14)).

 

TWO THINGS; SOMETHING HAPPENED – NEVER LEAVE WITH YOU

 

459 (4) Yesterday afternoon something happened in my room that I'll never be able to leave it. You see? And about two weeks ago something happened that'll never be able to, as long as I live on this earth, I'll never be able to get away from it. See? …( New Ed. Page 411 (15)).

^Top^

 

CHURCH DON’T SUPPOSE TO KNOW IT, DON’T INTERPRET,

OR OFF THE BEATEN TRACK

 

459 (5) And so, but if 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 off the beaten track. (New Ed. Page 411 (16)).

 

DON’T TRY TO INTERPRET SEVENTH SEAL,

GO ON WITH SAME PLAIN MESSAGE

 

459 (6) 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. See? Just don't try to interpret it. You just go ahead and just be humble and go right on with the same plain message. Now you say, "Brother Branham, …we, being the Church of the Living God, shouldn't we...?" (New Ed. Page 411 (16-18)).

^Top^

 

WHAT IS THE PLAIN MESSAGE?
 
˙In relation to the opening of the seventh seal and seven thunders, the plain message is to preach the message of Malachi 4:5-6, less the seventh seal and seven thunders. 

 

˙All of the message world faithfully followed the instructions of the prophet and proclaimed a thunderless message for about ten years. I am asking, since 1973, who broke those ten years of silence? By what authority who broke it? And what is the half hour silence?

 

˙Message believers lived more holiness, preachers preached and established more holiness and plain message doctrines in the ten years of silence on the seventh seal than they did after that time. Plain message doctrines are: baptism according to Acts 2:38, one God, no woman preachers, no television, no sports, no organizations, the Catholic church and her daughters are identified in Revelation Chapter 17, serpent seed, predestination, Malachi 4: 5-6, seven church ages, and six seals were revealed.

 

˙Plain message standards are: no worldly styles of clothing, hair, shoes, etc. Women without tight clothes, sacks, pants, mermaid dresses, transparent, under clothes visible or imprinted, high heel shoes, fine material hugging their bodies, no jewels, except wedding rings, or chains as a gift. Preachers, deacons and any tender in the House of God are disqualified if they cannot rule their homes, and their wives and children are not in the faith.

 

˙All such doctrines and standards, message believers practiced with a thunderless gospel message. After 1973 the holiness message was destroyed, and the standards lowered, when they should have even higher moral standards than in previous years.

^Top^

 

LISTEN TO WHAT I TELL YOU

 

459 (7)…"Why can't I? I ought to have..."

460 (1) No. You remember, I'm saying this for your good. See, I'm saying it so that you'll understand. If you believe me now, listen to what I tell you. See? (New Ed. Pages 411 (18-19))

                                                                                  

“LORD SAY”, BE CAREFUL

 

460 (4) Now, just remember, just stay the way you are. And you say,

  "Well, the Lord..." No, now just be careful. (New Ed. Page 411 (21) to 412 (22)).

 

DON’T INTERPRET NOTHING, HE WILL SEND IT TO YOU

 

460 (5) Now, look here. Let me show you something. See? Did you know there's ten thousands of voices in this room right now, literally voices of people that's coming through the electronic waves of radio? Why don't you hear them? They're voices. Is that right? They're waving right through here now. There's people, forms, and bodies moving right through this room now. Is that right? Well, why don't you see them? They're here, actual voices, like my voice. Well, why don't you hear it?

460 (6) See, it's got to strike something first to reveal it. See? Now, do you understand? So just don't interpret nothing. If God wants you to know anything, He will send it to you (See?); so just be real, real solid now. Hold still. Something has happened. And now just be real... You understand what I mean, don't you? (New Ed. Page 412 (23-24))).

 

DON’T MAKE YOURSELF ODD, THIS IS THAT THIRD PULL

 

460 (7) Don't try to make yourself odd to be a Christian, because (You see?), you take yourself away from God. If you can understand it, this is that third pull. You should've caught that the other day. See. So then just…(New Ed. Page 412 (24-25) ).

^Top^

 

THERE WILL BE NO IMPERSONATION OF THIRD PULL.

THIS IS FAR AS YOU SHOULD KNOW

 

460 (8) Remember, there'll be no impersonation like there was of the other two. See? So that's as far as you should know. Now just remember that you see now there's something taking place in this room, and there's something here... There's actual in this room, Angels, voice of God (See?), but ... If you can't hear the natural voice without something to send it out, how are you going to hear the spiritual voice? (New Ed. Page 412 (25-26)).

 

MAKE BELIEVE SONG SINGING,

 TRUE INTERPRETATION AND VINDICATION

 

461 (1) Now you might make believe that somebody is singing this certain song that might not even be there. See? 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. See what I mean? (New Ed. Page 412 (27)).

 

THE SEVENTH SEAL IS NOT KNOWN – LIKE COMING OF CHRIST

 

                465 (2)…And we took what Jesus said here. They asked three questions (See?): "When will these things be? What'll be the sign of Your coming? And what's the end of the world?" And He come right down, and we pulled them, everyone, under that but one. What was that? The Seventh Seal. Why? See, it's not known. (New Ed. Page 416 (56)).

  ^Top^

 

SEVENTH SEAL DOESN’T REVEAL ANY THING, WHAT HAPPENS TO IT.

CHURCH AGES – PROPHETIC GIFT REVEALS THAT

 

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. See? Are you following it? All right. (New Ed. Page 417 (67)).

 

˙Brother Branham is establishing that the congregation cannot get the revelation of the seventh seal by themselves. It has a program. You ask, “If Brother Branham did not reveal the seventh seal, who will? What is that program? Where do we stand if you say he did not get it?” That is not what I am here for, to put my interpretations! I am only saying what he said. If it belongs to your school, take it. You may be right.

 

˙I am about to read to you the seventh seal, just the way that the prophet spoke it. Where he stopped on certain pages and do not directly speak on the subject, I will paraphrase each item to make any connection to the seal. I will also itemize by numbering each fact. Thus these two university graduates who mastered the English language, and were asked earlier to observe if I am misunderstanding the words of the prophet, can bring the same to my attention, and also to the congregation. The same holds well for my critics, or misinterpreters of the seventh seal, that makes it say different to what the prophet stated by revelation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

 

˙I hereby request that you quote me the fact number, and prove that I have misquoted the major prophet, or misrepresented his words to make it say what he is not saying.

 

˙I have not engaged these two university graduates to confirm if Brother Branham’s revelation of the seventh seal is right, but simply to verify if I am staying in line with the English language as spoken by the prophet, and inspired ministers and one thousand (1000) message believers, members of both schools of thoughts present, and those who will hear this by audio and video tape, that they may discern the truth that Brother Branham spoke about the seventh seal: was it opened from 1963 to 1965, or not opened?

 

˙On the evening of March 24th, 1963, he went to the pulpit to give his revelation of the seventh seal. He instead enlightened the church upon the seventh chapter of Revelation, and stated that the 144,000 Jews spoken of in chapter seven, are rightfully placed between the sixth and seventh seal. He further clarified that two original tribes were replaced by two other tribes because of their idolatry. Much time was spent upon this subject before he spoke anything about the seventh seal. He stated as follows on pages 532 and 536 (New Ed. Page 479 and 483), nevertheless his actual subject on the seventh seal started on page 555.

THE ORIGINAL SEVENTH SEAL

Brother William Branham

 

 

JESUS OMITTED SEVENTH SEAL ON THE MOUNT

 

                532 (5) Now, we find out that…The Lord let us take the Scripture, the Holy Scripture, what Jesus said would take place…(His sermon there) answering that, brings out exactly to the point, six of the Seals, but He omitted the Seventh. See? (New Ed. Page 479 (51-52)).

 
OMITTED REVEALING EVEN ANY SYMBOL

 

532 (6) Then when the Seals were open, God, He omitted revealing even any symbol of the Seventh one. See? It's a perfect secret with God… (New Ed. Page 479 (53)).

 

SEVENTH SEAL SPOKE OF IN GENESIS

 

536 (4)…And if I only had time (I'll try a few places) to show you all the way back from Genesis…this Seventh Seal is spoke of. From the very beginning in Genesis, this seventh…these Seals moved right up. (New Ed. Page 483 (77-79).

^Top^

 

FACT NO.1

SEALED UP OF THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION

 

555 (7) Now, we'll turn now to the…1st verse…of the 8th chapter- Revelations 8:1…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. (New Ed. Page 501 (229-232)).

 

SEVENTH SEAL – END OF ALL THINGS

 

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

556 (2) Notice, it's the end of the church age. It's the end of the Seven Seals. It's the end of the trumpets. It's the end of the vials, and even ends the ushering in of the millennium; that's on the Seventh Seal.

556 (3) 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.

556 (4) Now, how is He going to do it? That's what we don't know, isn't it? We don't know. It's even the time for all these things, and the ushering in of the millennium. Notice, the breaking of this Seal was so great that heaven was hushed by it in silence for the space of a half hour. Now, is it great? What is it? It was hushed: heaven. There wasn't a thing moved for a half hour. (New Ed. Pages 501 (232) to 502 (238)).

 

JESUS NEVER MENTIONED IT-HIS COMING

 

556 (5) Now, a half hour might not be long if you're having a good time, but in the suspense of between death and life, it seemed like a millennium. It was so great, Jesus never mentioned it: none of the rest of them. John couldn't even write of it. No, he was forbidden to write here. See,…He didn't write, but just silence. (New Ed. Page 502 (239-240)).

FACT NO.2

SEVENTH SEAL, NONE OF US KNOWS, TELL YOU MY REVELATION

 

557 (2)…Why? What is it?

557 (3) Now, none of us know; but I'm going to tell you my revelation of it. And now, I am not prone to be a fanatic. If I am, I'm ignorant of it. See? I'm not given away to such as "leerious" or carry-ons and imaginary things. I've said some things might have been kind of strange to some people, but when God comes around behind it and vindicates it and says it's the Truth, then that's God's Word. It may seem strange that way.  (New Ed. Page 502 (245) to 503 (247)).

 

FACT NO.3

I HAD THE REVELATION THAT REVEALED—

IT’S IN A THREEFOLD MANNER

FACT NO. 4

MYSTERY LAYING BEHIND SEVEN THUNDERS

 

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. And then you... Let's go over there first. Here's the revelation to begin what... I want to tell you what it is. What happens is that those seven thunders that he heard thunder and was forbidden to write, that's what the mystery is laying behind those seven consecutive thunders rolling out. (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.

 

557 (5) Now, why? Let us prove it. Why? It is the secret that no one knows about. John was forbidding to write about it, even write a symbol about it. Why? This is why there was no activity in heaven; it might give away the secret. Do you see it now? If it's so great it must be included, because it's got to happen, but when the seven thunders…(New Ed. Page 503 (249-250)).

FACT NO.5

JESUS NEVER SPOKE OF IT, JOHN COULDN’T WRITE IT,

 ANGELS KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IT, TOTAL SECRET

 

558 (1)…but here is seven straight thunders right in a row: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, that perfect number. Seven thunders in a row, uttered not, making just one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, straight. Then heavens couldn't write that. Heavens can't know about it, nothing else, because there's nothing to go on. It's a relaxing time. It was so great till it's kept secret from the Angels. Now, why? If Satan should get a hold of it, he might do great damage. There's one thing he don't know. Now, he can interpret anything he wants to, and impersonate any kind of a gift (I hope you're learning.), but he can't know this. It's not even written in the Word. It's a total secret. The Angels, everything shut up. If they made one move it might give something away, so they just shut up, quit harping; everything stopped.

558 (2) Seven--God's perfect number, Seven [Brother Branham knocks seven times on pulpit--Ed.] just right down the row. Seven thunders uttered straight together like they're spelling out something. Notice, at that time, John started to write, and He said, "Don't write it." Jesus never spoke of it. John couldn't write it. Angels know nothing about it. (New Ed. Page 503 (252) to 504 (256)).

 

WHAT IS IT? HE DID NOT KNOW IT HIMSELF

 

558 (3) What is it? It's the thing that Jesus said even the Angels of heaven didn't know nothing about it. See, see? He didn't know it Himself, said only God would know it, but He told us when we begin to see these signs coming up... (Now, you getting somewhere? All right.) Notice, we begin to see these signs coming up. See?… (New Ed. Page 504 (256-257)).

 

˙(From Revelation 8:1 silence, God revealed two more silence in scriptures to the prophet: the unwritten seven thunders, and Christ second coming. Thus the seventh seal holds the coming of the Lord. The first fold told to the church.)

FACT NO.6

SATAN CAN’T IMPERSONATE IT, HE DON’T KNOW IT,

IT’S THE THIRD PULL

 

558 (6) Remember, Satan will try to impersonate. He will try to impersonate everything that the Church will do. He's tried to do it. We've noticed it through the antichrist; but this is one thing he cannot impersonate. There'll be no mimics to this (See?), 'cause he don't know it. There's no way for him to know it. It's the third pull. He just knows nothing about it. See? He doesn't understand it(New Ed. Page 504 (259-260)).

^Top^

 

FACT NO. 7

SECRET LAYS BENEATH THAT, I CAN NEVER THINK THE SAME

 

559 (1)…but there's a secret lays beneath that. Glory to God in the highest. I can never think the same the rest of my life, when I seen... (New Ed. Page 504 (261)).

 

I DON’T KNOW HOW TO INTERPRET,

STOP!  GO NO FURTHER THAN THIS

 

559 (3) Now, I don't know what... I know the next step there, but I don't know how to interpret that. It won't be long. I've got it wrote down here when it happened, if you can see here, "STOP! Go no further than this right here."

559 (4) I'm not prone to be a fanatic--just telling the truth…(New Ed. Page 504 (261)).

 

˙(Brother Branham stopped explaining what revelation he had on the seventh seal, then related two visions: the third pull vision of the baby shoes, and the constellation of angels, and stated that something mysterious was going on, and it has been a mysterious week. He gave the interpretation of a vision, and placed Brother Sothmann and Norman under oath, and continued to speak of a strange and notable Angel among the seven angels.)

FACT NO.8

SEVENTH ANGEL FLYING EASTWARD

 

                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? (New Ed. Page 506 (275)).

 

SEVENTH ANGEL WITH SEVENTH SEAL,

THING I WONDERED ALL MY LIFE

 

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… (New Ed. Page 506 (276-277)).

 

˙(From pages 561-563(New Ed. Pages 506-508) Brother Branham spoke of his experience of a sword dropping into his hands and a voice spoke and said, “It’s the King’s sword.” Something inside of him said, “don’t fear, this is that Third Pull,” and he related the Third Pull vision, and said, the light went over the tent and said: “I’ll meet you there. This will be the Third Pull, and you won’t tell it to nobody!”)

FACT NO.9

THIRD PULL, TWO GREAT THINGS UNFOLDED,

ONE THING IN UNKNOWN LANGUAGE, I CANNOT INTERPRET

 

564 (2) 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. But I was standing right there and looked right straight at it, and this is the third pull coming up. And the Holy Spirit of God... Oh, my. That's the reason all heaven was silent. (New Ed. Page 509 (299-300)).

 

CHECKED TO STOP, REASON SEVENTH SEAL NOT REVEALED

 

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)).

               

˙(Brother Branham then stated that the Third Pull vision came many years ago, and “it fits exactly in the promises of God from the end of the Message.”)

^Top^

 

FACT NO.10

HE REVEALED ALL SIX SEALS, SAY NOTHING ABOUT SEVENTH SEAL.

FACT NO.11

IT STARTS IN SECRET

 

                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. (New Ed. Page 510 (304)).

 

˙(Brother Branham continued to speak of the Third Pull vision and how he entered the constellation of seven angels, and the seventh one meant more to him than the others. He also related the dream of Jackson on the pyramid rock, and said,:)

FACT NO. 12

WHAT THIS GREAT SECRET IS, I DO NOT KNOW

FACT NO.13

I KNOW IT’S THEM SEVEN THUNDERS

 

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)).

 

I LOOKED FOR INTERPRETATION, I COULDN’T MAKE IT OUT,

HOUR ISN’T QUITE YET FOR IT

 

567 (2) Then when I seen that, I looked for the interpretation that flew across there, and I couldn't make it out. That's exactly right, friend. See? The hour isn't quite yet for it, but it's moving into that cycle. See? It's coming up close. So the thing for you to do is to remember that I speak to you in the Name of the Lord: Be prepared, for you don't know what time something can happen. (New Ed. Page 510 (323-324)).

FACT NO.14

I TOLD YOU WHATEVER WAS TOLD ME, DO WHATEVER YOU WANT TO

 

567 (3) Now, when that gets on tape, which it is, that'll probably send ten thousand of my friends away from me, 'cause they're going to say that Brother Branham's trying to put himself and make himself a servant, or a prophet, or something before God. Let me tell you, my brethren, that is an error. 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?)

567 (4) 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. I don't know. But I have been privileged by God to look and see what it was--unfold to that much. Now, that is the truth. (New Ed. Page 512 (325) to 513 (328)).

 

˙You say, “Who is this great person that must increase and the prophet decrease?” “I believe it is Joseph.” “It’s me.” I am not here for that! I promise not to interpret nothing, but just give you the bear facts. Behave yourself! Don’t make confusion and put words in my mouth! You ask, “What does he mean that he bore the message as far as it’s ordained for him to bear it, and will hand the sword over to somebody else?” “Do what you want to.” That is what Brother Branham told the people when he preached this to them, and I am right in place to say the same thing, now that I am quoting exactly what he revealed. I am not that one. I make myself absolutely clear. He said, “Don’t interpret it.”

FACT NO.15

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

 

                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. (New Ed. Page 513 (335-336)).

 

˙(Pages 569-573 (New Ed. Pages 514-518), Brother Branham explained the manner in which he received the revelation of the six seals, thanked the people for gathering, and warned the people by saying:)

DON’T TRY TO INTERPRET IT - EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS THAT NOW?

 

571 (3) “…Don’t try to interpret the things. Don’t try to do anything more than just live a close life, giving praise and honour to Jesus Christ. Every body understands that now? Love him with all your heart. Do you do it?” And he prayed: 572(4) “…our heavenly Father, may the people, Lord, understand, which I am sure that there’s some that doesn’t…”(New Ed.

Let me be true, Lord, and honest and sincere that I might be able to bear the message as far as it's ordained for me to bear. And when it comes to the time that I must lay down, when I get down to the river, and the waves begin to come in, O God, may I be able to hand this old Sword over to somebody else that'll be honest with It, Lord, and will pack the truth. Grant it, Lord…” (New Ed. 518(373)).

NEW PORTION OF MESSAGE, USED IN PLACE OF THE ORIGINAL.

(MOTEL ROOM RECORDING) TAKEN UNABRIDGED FROM TAPE

NO. 63-0324E JEFF. INDIANA, U.S.A., MONDAY MARCH 25, 1963

PAGES 574-579 -------- NEW. ED. PAGES 519-523

 

[You have just finished hearing the original "Seventh Seal" as it was preached in its entirety on Sunday evening, March 24th, 1963 at the Branham Tabernacle in Jeffersonville Indiana. Brother Branham did not want this original recording released. The next day, Monday, March 25th, 1963, Brother Branham went to the motel room of Brother Fred Sothmann and Brother James McGuire who were at that time in charge of making the tapes. Brother Branham told these brothers, "I don't want this message sent out the way it is." After listening to the tape himself, he instructed the brothers to stop the tape at a certain point, and at that point--(beginning of paragraph number 261)--recorded a new portion of approximately twenty minutes in length--(paragraph 377-414)). This new portion was then used in place of the original ending--(paragraph 261-373). This recording was the only released version of the "Seventh Seal" until 1966. After Brother Branham left the scene, the board of the William Branham Evangelistic Association unanimously agreed to release the tape originally recorded at the Tabernacle. Since that time, both versions have been available. We have now placed this additional message of Brother Branham on one tape, with the original "Seventh Seal." The next voice you hear will be Brother Branham in the motel room on Monday, March 25th, 1963--Ed.]

FACT NO.19

HID TO THE WORLD, GOD WILL REVEAL IT

 

574 (1)…It’ll be a good thing that he doesn't know anything about it, because if he did, then he would impersonate that. That's his tricks in doing things. So therefore, God has made it so hid to the whole world, even to heaven, that there is no way of understanding it, only as God will reveal it Himself. (New Ed. Page 519 (377-378)).

FACT NO.20

THREEFOLD PURPOSE OF SIXTH SEAL AND HORSERIDERS

 

574 (2) Now, I want you to notice tonight that in the Sixth Seal there

was a threefold purpose of the Sixth Seal. There was a threefold purpose of the horse riders. There's been a threefold purpose in all these things. That brings us back to a three and a seven again (See?), seven Seals, seven vials, and so forth. (New Ed. Page 519 (379-380)).

 

˙(Brother Branham then spoke of God’s mathematics of revealing His Word, the four horse riders and the four beasts, and stated, 574 (7) “Now we are into the Eagle age”. (New Ed. Page 519 (386).

 

THREEFOLD PURPOSE – PURGING OF ALL FILTH

 

575 (1) Now, we find out also in this that the Sixth Seal now being opened, it was for a threefold purpose. Now, here was the purposes: The first thing was that….(the sleeping virgins had to go through the tribulation period for purification…

575 (3)…the second fold. God purges Israel in the tribulation period…

575 (4)…Notice, there is a whole earth…to be purged. There will be such a thing that the moon, stars, and all nature will be purged.)…everything that's got any filth in it is to be purged during the Sixth Seal. (New Ed. Page 520(387-390)).

FACT NO.21

SEVENTH SEAL THREEFOLD PURPOSE, ONE FOLD SPOKEN, SEVEN THUNDERS WILL UNFOLD MYSTERY AT CHRIST’S COMING

 

575 (5) 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. (New Ed. Page 520(391).

^Top^

 

 

FACT NO.22

SEVEN THUNDERS WILL REVEAL CHRIST’S COMING AT THAT TIME

 

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. (New Ed. Page 520(392-393).

^Top^

 

FACT NO.23

WE DON’T KNOW IT, BUT IT WILL BE REVEALED

IN THAT TIME, HOUR, DAY

 

 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. (New Ed. Page 520(393).

FACT NO.24

SIXTH SEAL OPENED, SEVENTH SEAL CANNOT BE BROKE TO

THE PUBLIC UNTIL THAT HOUR ARRIVES

 

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. (New Ed. Page 521 (393).

^Top^

 

FACT NO.25

NO ONE WOULD KNOW HIS COMING,

 NO ONE KNOWS SEVEN THUNDERS

 

576 (3) Now, there was some reason that God let this seven voices be thundered, because it must come (See?)…we find that Christ, the Lamb took the Book in His hand, and He opened that Seventh Seal. But you see, it's a hidden mystery. No one knows it. But 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. (New Ed. Page 521 (394)).

^Top^

 

FACT NO.26

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

 

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. (New Ed. Page 521 (395-396)).

IN COMPLETION SIX SEALS, WE UNDERSTAND

SEVENTH SEAL NOT TO THE PUBLIC

 

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. (New Ed. Page 521 (397)).

HOUR IS NOT YET FOR THIS MYSTERY TO BE KNOWN,

THE REST KNOWN AROUND TIME JESUS APPEARS

 

576 (7) You see Israel's gathering in its own homeland. But you notice, He omitted the revelation of this Seventh Seal. And here when the Seventh Seal, when He opened it, He also omitted it again. See? So we see that it is a complete mystery, therefore, 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, or whatever takes place at that time.

577 (1) Now, until that time, let's just all pray and live good straight Christian lives, looking forward for His coming. (New Ed. Page 521 (398-399)).

FACT NO.29

MAKE NO ISM – TO THIS TIME IT ISN’T OPENED,

 PROMISED IT WOULD BE OPENED

 

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)).

MYSTERIOUS WHITE ROCK PYRAMID (JACKSON’S DREAM),

MESSENGERS INTERPRET THAT PYRAMID

 

578 (2) Another thing, I want you to notice what taken place. And if you're listening to the tape of "What Time Is It, Sir?" you will notice that one Angel was very notable to me. The rest of them just seemed ordinarily; but this Angel was a noted Angel. He was to my left in the constellation in a form of a pyramid. 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 mysteries of God known only to them. And now, they were the messengers that come to interpret that pyramid or that message of the secret of these Seven Seals which lays with inside the pyramid. (New Ed. Pages 522 (405-406))

^Top^

 

FACT NO.31

WE DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS AS YET, BECAUSE

IT’S NOT PERMITTED TO BE BROKEN – NOTABLE ANGEL

 

578 (3) Now, the Angel was to my left, would really be the last, or seventh Angel, if we would count them from left to right, because he was on my left, me looking to him towards the west, him coming towards the east would be on the left side, so that would be the last angel's message: very notable. You remember how I said he had his head back, and his great sharp wings, and how he flew right to me. 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. (New Ed. Pages 523 (407)).

FACT NO.32

THE INTERPRETATION IS THUS SAITH THE LORD                                                                                                                                   

 

579 (3) Now, the vision, plus the Word, plus the history, plus the church ages; and all blend together. So I could truly say that to the best of my understanding and according to the Word of God and the vision and the revelation, the interpretation thereof is THUS SAITH THE LORD.

579 (4) Now, may the Lord bless you all, each one, real richly as we stand now and sing this good old song of the church. God bless you each one. Amen. [This marks the end of Monday's portion of this sermon--Ed.]      

 

˙My brothers and sisters, that marks the end of the Monday exhortation

in the motel room that Brother Branham gave. And I quote as fact No.32, that Brother Branham said that the six seals plus the revelation that he was given about the seventh seal, is “THUS SAITH THE LORD.” I believe it. Therefore the seventh seal revelation; the main revelation of the seventh seal was the coming of the Lord that was hiding under the thunders. So the thunders holds the coming of the Lord, and Brother Branham could not interpret it! And later on he came back to the pulpit, and he now confirms that. He said what was hiding under that seventh seal was the coming of the Lord, and I could not make it out. No one knows how He will come and when He will come. Hear his own Words. This is “Christ is the mystery of God revealed:”

^Top^

 

FACT NO.33

SILENCE HALF HOUR, SEVEN THUNDERS, HOW HE IS COMING

 HE HASN’T REVEALED YET

 

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. 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 28/7/63).

 

˙ The prophet of God speaking of the last seal again, he said, “that was the coming of the Lord, and under the last seal held,   when the Lord will come, how He is coming, and when He is coming.” If a man knows the seventh seal, he will know how the Lord is coming, because that is the major revelation under that seal. And notice that all that preach seven thunders, they cannot tell you that secret, that the angels never knew, yes, that Jesus never knew, that nobody knew, that Brother Branham said was in an unknown language; they cannot tell you “how Jesus comes, and when He comes,” because the seven thunders holds the coming of the Lord. There is a specific time for the revelation, and a specific hour. If the food gets cold, it just has to get cold.

 

˙I am going to step away from 1963 now. Brother Branham belonged to a certain school of thought. I am saying that the school that Brother Branham belonged to was that the seventh seal was not revealed! Because it held the coming of the Lord, and the seven thunders was holding the mystery of the coming of the Lord. Let me see if the coming of the Lord was the event from the opening of the seals.

 

˙Now if that’s the school Brother Branham belonged to, he must have continued in that same school.

 

˙Brother Branham maintained the same facts of the Seventh seal, which he established on the seven seals book, specifically on the Seventh Seal pages 557-579, where he concluded that six seals were revealed, and the seventh seal was not revealed by him in 1963, but is yet to be revealed, and it holds the second coming of Jesus Christ, which nobody knows as yet. All right, I read from  “Souls in prison.”

FACT NO.34

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

 

  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).

 

˙ That is 1963, the eleventh month. He is still holding that vision, saying that

the seventh seal was not opened, because it was the coming of the Lord.

 

23-4   076   Now we see these things. 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).

 

˙Unquote. That is English. Many times Brother Branham said, “When the seven seals was opened,” you know people hold that, but he is correcting himself here. He started to say “seven seals”, and then he checked back, and he said, “One of them He wouldn’t permit.” He said, “How many was here? You Know He didn’t permit it.” That is, “Souls in prison.”

FACT NO.35

WAITING FOR SEVENTH SEAL TO BE IDENTIFIED

 WITH COMING OF CHRIST

 

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 24/11/63).

 

˙ Anybody that preaches the seventh seal, they will be preaching the coming of Christ, because the coming of Christ identifies the seventh seal. I’ll read it back; let the university graduates hear me.

 

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 24/11/63).

 

˙The seventh seal goes along with the coming of Christ. If you’re preaching the seventh seal, you have to know the ins and outs about the coming of Christ, because the coming of Christ identifies the seventh seal.

FACT NO.39

TEACHING LAST SEVEN THUNDERS – COULDN’T GET ROOM TO DO IT

 

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).

 

˙The prophet of God in 1965, now come down to search for a place to see if he could preach the seven thunders. It shows that he did not reveal it in 1963.

 

^Top^

FACT NO.40

WAIT TILL WE GET IN TO OPEN THEM SEVEN THUNDERS

 

Just wait till we get in to open those plagues and seals and them seven thunders. Watch what takes place. Oh, brother, you better get to Goshen while there's time to get to Goshen. Don't pay any attention to this outside. (Knoweth it not 15/8/65).

 

˙Yes my brothers and sisters, up to 1965, Brother Branham kept one straight course. One straight course! Closing remarks, come musicians. Do you know what caused all the ministers and all the believers to be silent for ten years, belonging to the first school, and having one revelation that the seventh seal was not revealed? Do you know what caused that? Because of what I just read to you. All of us believed that, and we based our thoughts and our ideas and every single thing, upon what I just read to you.

 

˙I want to announce to you that Brother Branham belonged to the first school (school number one). Brother Branham belonged to that first school. And the first school, my brother, that, “It was not revealed.” But Brother Branham hoped, he prayed, he trusted God, to have received that revelation. That was Brother Branham’s hope. And he was looking in the scripture in Revelation 10:7, and hoping that, that mystery was going to be revealed to him.

 

˙Why wasn’t that mystery revealed to Brother Branham, being Revelation 10:7, and all the mysteries supposed to be revealed to Brother Branham, which is the seventh angel? Why wasn’t it revealed? Because the seventh angel was to reveal the mysteries written inside of the Book; and the seven thunders was not written in the Book. So the scripture is not broken.

 

˙So like you’re waiting for an eighth messenger preacher?” Don’t be fast! Listen to what the prophet is saying. He himself did not know. He said, “About the time of the coming of the Lord; this seventh seal cannot be broken to the public.” Now there’s a specific time, there’s a specific way; there’s a specific program. That’s what it is.

 

˙Let me tell you something friend, “Brother Branham going into heaven did not tie God’s hand.” Don’t you know brothers and sisters, after Brother Branham left the scene, there is a five-fold ministry of apostle, prophet, teacher, evangelist and pastor? Why God can’t use, a prophet from the five-fold to break the ministry to the public and to bring the revelation of the seven thunders? Tell me why?

 

˙You say; “I don’t believe no prophet after Brother Branham.” Who is Joseph Branham? Who is Joseph Branham? Is that an eighth messenger? [Congregation says, “No.”] Is that an eighth prophet?   [Congregation says, “No”.] No. He has a place, my brother, where God places him. Is that right? Where God place him, he’ll be placed. So if a prophet arises, that doesn’t make him an eighth messenger. It makes him a prophet in the five-fold ministry; and when God gets ready to do His business, He will use even a donkey, to prophecy to Balaam.

 

˙ It would be unfair if I don’t put in the other quotes, which the people that belong to the second school, lay their foundation, to believe that it was opened up, and never spoke of it until 1973 – ten silent years. I am still asking the question, “Why ten silent years? Who broke the silence?” and I am still asking, “If they got the revelation of the seventh seal, tell me about the coming of the Lord?” The major revelation under the seventh seal is the coming of the Lord. It must say how and when.

 

˙There are only three or four major quotations that these lovely brothers used as the foundation of the second school, and that is, in page 327 of the church ages that was written in 1960 before the seals were opened, and Questions and Answers 1964, it states:

 

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 page 327);

               

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).

 

˙All right. How could you leave all of this that I just read, to hang of on the answer of a busy question and answer? And I am not going to dodge this issue on the church ages, page 327. The first thing that I want to call to your attention is, that statement is nowhere on the tapes of Brother Branham. I am going to look that quotation right in the face; I am not afraid of it at all. Hear me. “The ministry of Malachi 4 is to do two things, and one of it is to reveal the seven thunders.” That’s how it goes. All right. “It is the divinely revealed truths as contained in the seven seals.” In other words, they are saying that the seven thunders that Brother Branham revealed is hiding in the seven seals book. All right. I will look that quotation right in the face.

 

˙The seven thunders that Brother Branham revealed, is contained in the seven seals.” I want to find the thunders. Is the thunders the white horse? Come on answer me. Is the thunders the red horse? Is the thunders the black horse? Is the thunders the pale horse? Is the thunders the Jews? Is the seven thunders the tribulation? And you know what we just read in the seventh seal; it is clear that he said that the coming of the Lord is under the seventh seal. 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. Let us hear his words on it. The church ages says, my brothers and sisters, it is the same thing. Brother Branham said, it is not.

 

                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. Page 66(49).

 

˙The contents of the seven seals book is different from the seven thunders, because the seven thunders was not revealed by Brother Branham. It was not revealed by Brother Branham. Oh glory to God. Don’t get fed-up with me. All right.

 

˙The second school of thought, this school was opened up in 1973 to 1974 in New York, U.S.A., ten years later, ten silent years. 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.” My beloved, I did not read that in all the quotations that we just read here, 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, my brother, it gained international recognition, and that went through the whole world, but God proved that was wrong, and everybody that preach thunders and seventh seal are based upon that revelation from New York, directly or indirectly. You say, preacher, I want to ask you one bold question, “Which school do you belong to?” I belong to Brother Branham’s school. I say I belong to Brother Branham’s school. The seventh seal was not revealed in 1963 by Brother Branham. There is a specific program, there is a specific time, there is a specific plan, and he did not reveal it. I speak that on the basis of God’s Word and the message of the hour. I belong to that school, and I never changed school after the ten silent years.

 

˙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.

 

˙So we’re going to eat our food in a little while. But we are going to marry two people just now, and I’m trying to get you real hungry, so you will enjoy the meal. So by the time that they’re hotting the food and so on, brother we’re going to perform a wedding here. Everybody’s with me?

˙So we’re going to have a little baptism of these brethren; some little brethren. Yes. Big souls, small souls, it doesn’t matter with God. So we have some small people to baptise, and one or two others; and we’re going to have this baptism right away.

 

˙Brothers and sisters, I have delivered the whole council of God, everything that Brother Branham said on the seventh seal and seven thunders. I believe just as Brother Branham said concerning the seven thunders, “It will translate the Bride, and it will break a revival amongst the Bride”, yes, “and it is going to come.” I believe it. Yes sir. It is one and the selfsame as the seventh seal.

 

˙All who claim thunders around the world, God proved them wrong. It went 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 the thunders done: destroyed the holiness message of Brother Branham. I belong to the school of Brother Branham. 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.”

NOTICE OF AMENDMENT - APOLOGY  (BOOK 4 PAGE 70 – 1-4)

 

   In book four “Exposition Of Damnable Heresies five major doctrinal divisions message-believers”(pg 70 Para. 1-4). An article was documented of a Port of Spain Trinidad assembly identified with the second school of thought. Former affiliates, ministers and believers gave eyewitness accounts of some fanatical manifestations, which they practiced together with the assembly. It is my pleasure with great thankfulness to God to report to our readers that the pastor of the assembly contacted us after reading the article and humbly informed us that such practices no longer exists. We have found a very humble attitude in the pastor though the article disturbed him. Stating his convictions, he said that such practices were in the baby stage of the assembly and the screams of women he did not find disturbing and also no ropes were used but acknowledged an eyewitness account of a belt used by a deacon. We hereby humbly apologize for that misrepresentation to all that were affected, especially to the pastor, also if we documented that article after such practices were discontinued.

Nevertheless discerning the integrity of this pastor by his humble approach to us, we have fully accepted his testimony. May the Lord bless him and our brothers and sisters, we believe that they are all good people which we did not intentionally attack as individuals, but trust that they will understand even from book 5 “seventh seal/seven thunders two schools of thoughts” that it is an international system which we contend with, because according to our convictions it is wrong.

THE SEVENTH SEAL MISINTERPRETED-

TWO SCHOOLS OF THOUGHTS

 

˙This evening we have chosen to speak a little bit again on the seventh seal, and if you want to turn in your Bibles we’re going to read Revelation 8:1, and I will also read a very important scripture over in 2 Peter 3:16. So I read here in the first verse:

 

“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.” (Revelation 8:1).

 

˙That is all that is said about the seventh seal. And over in 2Peter 3; we’ll take a little higher up to catch the picture. Thirteenth verse:

 

“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness...”

 

˙Isn’t that comforting? “Nevertheless…” God will destroy the earth, the Bible said in the third chapter, and the elements shall burn with fervent heat. Yes. But  “…Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness…”

That is the hope of the Christian.

“…Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood…”

 

Pay attention to these words. Certain things in the writings and the message of Brother Paul, they are hard to be understood, because of the wisdom in which he spoke them.

 

 “…which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest…”

That is to forcibly twist. Wrest means, “to forcibly twist” (out of context.)

 

“…which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest…, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.”

 

When you twist the Word of God, you do it unto your own destruction.

“…Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” (2Peter 3:13-18).

 

I believe that these men were a whole lot like us; before I could read “Amen,” the congregation said, “Amen.” I believe we are getting there. They were a whole lot like us. Brother Paul was a man like us. The saints were like us, they just lived in a different age, and we had perverters, just like we have today, wresting the Scriptures that are hard to be understood. Yes. So may the Lord add a blessing to the reading of His Holy Words. You may be seated.

GREATEST WARNINGS OF W.M.B.

 

So I want to speak a little bit; and the title of this little message is, “The seventh seal misinterpreted-two schools of thoughts.” Now right there you must understand that the greatest warning of the prophet, Brother Branham, was, “do not go and interpret the seals, especially the seventh seal when it comes up tonight.” And he warned them over and over, throughout the preaching of the seventh seal, “Do not interpret the seal.” In his closing remarks, he said, “And if this tape will fall into the hands of somebody, do not go and make any ism from these things, for the seal is not opened.” In another place, he said, “If you try to interpret these things, you will wind yourself off the beaten track, and you will mess the program of God up.” All these are things that you ought to say “Amen” to, because I went over these things with you, one by one.

 

So this evening, the seventh seal is under discussion again – two schools of thoughts. So we started a little message on last Sunday, speaking on the seventh seal, and we said that all that follow the message, they are in agreement that six seals were revealed. But there is a controversy between the people. One school is saying, “It is revealed,” and another school is saying, “It is not revealed.

 

Now to settle our disputes, last Sunday, when we had a great, mixed audience; (today, the majority that are assembled belong to one school;) so I had to speak in that way, to not cause offences, and let everybody take, you know, and do what they want with it, like the prophet of God said. Today, I could speak a little more clearly on this second school of thought. So now, how we did that the last time, if you missed me, is that we took all that Brother Branham said on the seventh seal, starting from 1962, from ‘Sirs is this the time,” right on to 1965, and what I did, is that I took the seventh seal, and I went through reading to you the seventh seal, only stopping and paraphrasing certain experiences that he related, which I thought would take too long, and which the congregation is very familiar with. That is in order for us not to lose track of the subject of the seventh seal. But generally, the experience that you went through last Sunday, was a matter of reading the seventh seal just the way that the prophet of God related it in 1963, without any of my interpretation whatsoever. Towards the end, I was getting a little kind of war-like, but then I restrained myself, knowing

that we had to maintain peace and stability in the congregation.

 

So we took all that was said from 1962 to 1965, and then we entitled that, “Facts of the seventh seal,” but generally, brothers and sisters, we read the complete book of the seventh seal, starting from the very beginning, to give you an idea of exactly how Brother Branham presented it, what he said and what he did not say; except for the longer visions and everything that he related.

 

So, I was trying to number the facts, not just numbering where he said it was not opened, but numbering all the facts; and I started of with the seventh seal, trying to number the facts, and in the haste, you would notice that I stopped about “Fact No.16,” because I was so hurry. So I had the numbers in any case, and the facts that are numbered from the beginning of the seventh seal, unto 1965 when Brother Branham departed this life, ends up to be forty facts and over. So when I say facts, I mean those are the truths that Brother Branham established concerning the seventh seal. And I left those facts for those that were in attendance, to pick out what they want, and understand it how they want, but then I could not help it, but say which school Brother Branham belonged to, and I firmly believe, even tonight, that Brother Branham belonged to the first school that stated that the seventh seal was not broken, therefore, I identified myself, last Sunday, in the same school, saying that I belong to Brother Branham’s school.

 

So, we could number more facts, if I would take the introduction of questions and answers on the seals, and if I would number those “facts that were stated concerning the seventh seal, and not to interpret it,” it might make another ten, twelve or fifteen. But I leave this as is here, and I am dealing with these forty facts concerning the things Brother Branham said about the seventh seal, and this, more or less, picks up everything that is major, that Brother Branham stated about the seventh seal.

 

So we went along with that, and if you missed me last Sunday, I want to give you in a nutshell, right here this evening, basically, the revelation that Brother Branham explained concerning the seventh seal, in a nutshell, and that is to this congregation, and all believers that believe the prophet of God. Some child might have missed it. Somebody might have gotten tired in the two and three-quarter hours of message. So I’ll give you it in a nutshell of what Brother Branham said. Now, but I challenge any man, here or overseas, or any part of the world, to challenge this summary that I am going to give here, of what Brother Branham projected on the seventh seal, and its got to correspond.

^Top^

 

W.M.B.’s  REVELATION OF THE SEVENTH SEAL IN A NUTSHELL

 

Basically, brothers and sisters, Brother Branham established that six seals were revealed. Now if you remember the quotes, I want you to verify that. There might be people around the world listening to your voices. Brother Branham verified that six seals were revealed. The seventh seal was not revealed. [Congregation says, “Amen”].  That also, God gave him a revelation about the seventh seal. [Congregation says, “Amen”]. That revelation that God gave to Brother Branham about the seventh seal: God told him that the seventh seal was in a threefold manner, and all the other seals were in a threefold manner, therefore the seventh seal was also in a three-fold manner. [Congregation says, “Amen”]. He further told Brother Branham that, “the seventh seal is really the seven thunders.” That makes the seventh seal and the seven thunders, one and the selfsame revelation. [Congregation says, “Amen”]. He also told Brother Branham that it is the third pull. That pertains to a vision that Brother Branham had seen many years ago. So the seventh seal is the seven thunders, and the seven thunders is the third pull. And the greatest revelation that Brother Branham received from the Lord about the seventh seal, is that the seven thunders held the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. [Congregation says, “Amen”]. He further told him, that since nobody knows about the coming of the Lord, of how He comes and when He comes, therefore they also would not know about the seven thunders, because it is one and the selfsame revelation.

^Top^

 

THREE SILENCES

 

Brother Branham did not know where to go when he read Revelation 8:1, because all that the Bible said in the breaking of the seventh seal, “ there was silence in heaven.” God in His mercy told the prophet about the seal, and the first thing that He revealed to Brother Branham, He said, “now I refer you to Revelation the tenth chapter: there is something there that was not written, which is the seven thunders, and since that is not written in the Book, it becomes a silence. So, I am connecting this silence of Revelation 8:1, with the silence of Revelation 10.”  And, God is speaking to His prophet, He said, “I will refer you to another scripture in the Bible that has another silence, and that is, when they asked Jesus on the mountain, of three questions, one was concerning His coming…” That is Matthew 24. He said, “…and Jesus was silent on when He will come, and how He will come.” And when they asked Him that, He said, “Not even the angels know that, and I don’t know that, and nobody knows that. Only God knows that.”

 

So now, Brother Branham identified three silences in the Bible. Before that, he never knew that, and no man knew that the seventh seal silence was connected with Revelation 10, nor Matthew 24. Now, that was a big revelation to Brother Branham. Now, Brother Branham called that, “the first fold of the three-fold mystery of the seventh seal.” God told him that the seventh seal is a three-fold mystery. So Brother Branham called the first fold of that mystery, “The revelation that God told him about the other silences: that the seventh seal is hiding under the seven thunders, and it is the coming of the Lord.” Brother Branham called that, “the first fold.” He said, “This fold, I am going to give you that.” How many bear witness that I read the quotes? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. He said, “I am going to give you one fold of it.” The one fold that Brother Branham gave is that Brother Branham told the church of the connecting scriptures that concerns the seventh seal.

^Top^

 

SEVENTH SEAL – THREE-FOLD MYSTERY

 

Later on as he went along, Brother Branham said, “I had something unfolded to me yesterday, and something unfolded today, and another thing was in an unknown language that I could not interpret.” That gives us the understanding, that although Brother Branham gave one fold of the seventh seal, there was another fold that God gave him that he took to the grave and he kept it in his heart. Then, when Brother Branham looked for the third fold of it, it unfolded to an unknown language, that had to do with the seven thunders. He emphatically stated that, “I did not get the interpretation, I could not make it out, it was in an unknown language, and I could not read it.” Therefore the seven thunders was not revealed to Brother Branham, because it was in an unknown language.

 

Any body that preaches the thunders must be able to read the unknown language. They must be able to show where God revealed the unknown language to Brother Branham, on what tape, what date, what time; and if they cannot tell you that God came back from 1963, and told Brother Branham what the unknown language is, they are preaching false thunders, because the thunders was held in an unknown language. The only way that you could get the revelation of the thunders, you got to find somebody to read the unknown language, and Brother Branham said, that he could not read it. But the only thing he knew about the third pull and the seven thunders, he said, “The coming of the Lord is held under the seven thunders.” He said I am positive about that, the coming of the Lord is held under the seven thunders. Any body that is preaching the seven thunders must be able to tell you about the coming of the Lord. Brothers and sisters, people think they know about the coming of the Lord, but they don’t know, because it was hiding under the seventh seal, under the seven thunders, and Jesus never spake of it. Therefore the seven thunders holds the coming of the Lord, and He comes as the Son of Man. Do you hear me? And if they know about the coming of the Lord, they will know about the Son of Man. That is why when you speak “Son of Man,” my brother, they cannot understand “Son Of Man.”

 

So let me go over that three-fold with you again. Brothers and sisters, I know what I am talking about. This isn’t any mental something. I’m positive that I understood right. I’m positive of what I am saying. I am positive that if a man is sincere and honest, and go back and read the seven seals book, he’s got to find what I am saying here. He’s got to find it, and if he doesn’t find it, my brother, something is wrong with him. This is the truth of it.

 

Let me go over the three-fold again for you. The seventh seal was in a three-fold manner. Two folds were given to Brother Branham. One fold, he disclosed to the church. That is what you have in the seven seals book. The next fold, Brother Branham kept for himself, and the third fold, God kept for himself.

SEVENTH SEAL NOT OPENED – FLYING ANGEL HOLDS IT

 

The seventh seal is in a three-fold manner, God revealed two to Brother Branham, one he gave the church, the second one he kept for himself, and the third one, God kept for Himself, promising to reveal that just before the rapture. We are nearing something. On that basis Brother Branham fully declared that he don’t know that seventh seal revelation, and warned the people not to interpret it, and make any ism of the unopened seal, “it’s not to the public yet. It will be revealed about the time of the coming of Christ. It’s held by an Angel called the seventh Angel.” The seventh Angel is a flying Angel, and it picked up the earthly angel from the earth. Therefore they were not the same angel. One was a flying Angel and one was a walking angel. The flying Angel took up the walking angel, and took him up in a cloud twenty-six miles high and thirty miles across the sky, and the flying Angel flew eastwards with the seventh seal revelation. The earthly angel went away in 1965 unto glory, but the seventh Angel that flew away with the seventh seal, is still on earth. My God! I believe it. Brothers and sisters, that’s the complete and the full understanding of the seventh seal in a nutshell, what I disclosed.

 

And breaking it down for the little children, a little smaller, Brother Branham was Malachi 4 that was sent into the world.  There was a seven seals Book, and those seals locked up the whole Bible. Brother Branham was used of God to open six seals, and the last seal was not opened.  The last seal must be opened before the Rapture takes place; otherwise nobody could go in the Rapture. That’s the complete understanding. My brothers and sisters we understood this, not probably in the depth that we now understand that, but we understood this as early as the late sixties, knowing that the seventh seal was not opened.  Just like I told you here, and this isn’t any strange thing to me, that’s the truth. I’m tempted to say something, but that flying Angel holds the seventh seal.

 

All kinds of questions could revolve in the minds of people that first hear that, because they are so centralized on the message of Malachi 4, Revelation 10:7. “What about this?  What about that?  What about the next?  What about the next? What about the next?” Brothers and sisters, I am dealing strictly with the message, this is the message. You place that where you want, the prophet of God said, “Do what you want to. I have just spoken what was revealed to me”. I believe his revelation. Based upon the understanding of the seventh seal/seven thunders, third pull, coming of the Lord, that’s the highest revelation that anybody could get into. Under the seventh seal, seven thunders, third pull holds the highest revelation that anybody could climb up into. Brother Branham said all of that was wrapped up in the Son of Man, and the revealing of the Son of man.

W.M.B. HOPED TO RECEIVE AND PREACH

SEVENTH SEAL/SEVEN THUNDERS

 

Now, our brethren overseas and many people around the world do not understand that there was one time, since the opening of the Seals, that nobody preached “seventh seal”, and nobody preached “seven thunders”, and nobody preached third pull.  Nobody! They don’t understand that. That is why I have to go back a little into this to let you understand brethren, that after Brother Branham preached what he preached as the facts of the seventh seal, Brother Branham left it like that and he never took that as a subject again until he died.  Although Brother Branham hoped greatly, anxiously, desperately, that one day it could be revealed to him, as late as 1965, Brother Branham came back to Jeffersonville, and he said, “I am here for the purpose of preaching the seven thunders, but I could not find the room”.  Now, some smart Alec might want to say, “Well if Brother Branham came to preach the thunders, therefore it was revealed to him”.  How much sense does that make?  Think of that.  Brother Branham left Arizona in March 1963, to go to the Tabernacle for the preaching of the Seals, and God never gave him until the day he had to preach it. So Brother Branham was moving by faith in 1965. Hoping that the seventh Angel that is holding the last seal will again give him in the same room. So that is no evidence that he had the revelation, no, otherwise he will say it somewhere, that “Brethren, the Lord interpreted to me the unknown Language and I could not find room to preach it. He’d say, and I am here to preach it.” Brother Branham was a man of faith. Don’t you know that Brother Branham, in order to operate the third pull, which was Speak the Word Ministry, he went into a room several times and tried it out? And it did not work, because the time was not yet. How many believers of the message who read the message know that to be the truth? One time Brother Branham took his wife in there and he came back out, he said it didn’t work.  He was trying to move by faith, and it was by faith that Brother Branham came in 1965 to open up the thunders. How many knows that Brother Branham had announced to preach the seven trumpets?  And when he got ready to preach it, the Lord told him this is not the time; that is for the Jews.  Brother Branham was a man of faith.  He used to come in there and see if God would want to do this at this time.  He came back and announced and said, “I went into the room and everything, but the Lord told me this is not the time for it, it belongs to the Jews”. 

 

Anybody that claims to be preaching seven trumpets, is falsely led, is anointed of the devil, and they are trying to run ahead of the Ministry of Malachi 4. They are trying to run ahead of Moses and Elias. The seven trumpets, it was not revealed, but it was revealed mysteriously under the sixth seal.  You say, but since it was revealed mysteriously, we have a right to preach it.  Why is it that, Brother Branham, after he said that, now came to preach the seven trumpets?  If the people could have gotten it why did he now come to preach the seven trumpets and said, “I couldn’t get it”?  It goes to show that even though something is revealed mysteriously and hiding in something, it still takes a prophet to get it.

TEN YEARS OF SILENCE ON SEVENTH SEAL/SEVEN THUNDERS –

ONE SCHOOL OF THOUGHT

 

Based upon these facts and the warnings that Brother Branham gave, not to interpret the seventh seal, also in “question and answers”, after 1963, all preachers, my African brothers, down in the Philippines down in India, United States, South America, wherever you are, I am a witness, and we have many witnesses alive here this evening; that after reading the seventh Seal, based upon those facts, all preachers were silent on saying anything concerning the seventh seal, seven thunders and third pull for ten long years, and that was 1963 to 1973; ten years of silence. The reason we never spoke of the seventh seal, seven thunders and third pull, we all realized that they are related together.  The reason we never preached seven thunders, seventh seal, is because of what we read in the seals book, because of the warning of the prophet, Brother Branham.  We followed in line with Brother Branham.  We, at that time, for ten years, on the basis of the facts of the seventh seal that I preached to you last Sunday, all believed and all preached it just like Brother Branham, “It was not revealed.  Do not interpret it. Do not interfere with it.” We all, preachers and lay members, throughout the world belonged to the first school of thought, because Brother Branham belonged to that first school of thought.  What is first school of thought, Brother Bruce? First school of thought means, “seventh seal is not opened”, seven thunders not revealed, third pull is not revealed, wait till God reveal it. The flying Angel holds it.”  Now I will tell you, back there, we did not understand that the seventh Angel held it.  That’s the honest part of it, but we knew it was not revealed, and we should not interfere with it.  I am talking about every preacher in this country, every preacher in the Caribbean, every preacher in North America, and there was not one preacher that crossed this land that even opened his mouth about seven thunders nor seventh seal opened, until 1974. That’s the true testimony, and that is the picture.  We had men, wonderful men like Dan Daisley, Henry Greene, Pearry Greene, the Martin Brothers, Aaron Honeycutt, and many more that I could call their names here, we were all associated together. Not one!

 

In 1969 to 1970, one fanatic arose and it was the Bishop of this country in the Message, and I heard him schooling some young fellows outside of a service day and he said,  “The Thunders are revealed you know”. I walked up to him in the midst of everybody there; I said, “Why don’t you read the Book”? You like to speak about things that you don’t know what you are talking about; the seventh seal is not revealed. Prove it to me?”  He was quiet as a lamb.  I said,  “Show me it?” The only excuse that he had, was to say, “ You have the seven seals book?  Could you bring it down for me in the morning?”…pretending that he doesn’t have the book.  Brothers and sisters I took the book for him and he never even looked at it.  I brought it back home.  After a couple months, you know what that man told me.  “Aha, I was reading the seven seals and I found one thunder, and I was looking for the rest of them”.  He died and never found them because the thunders is not in the seven seals book.  It was in an unknown language and the prophet could not interpret it.  Are you getting the true picture of what went on?  Brother Branham presented that seventh seal to us? He belonged to the first school, which says that the seven thunders was not revealed.  We belonged to it, we were obedient to the prophet and we never did interpret the seventh seal based upon the forty (40) facts, and more, that I presented to you last Sunday.

WE BELIEVE IN THE SEVENTH SEAL/SEVEN THUNDERS

 

We preachers and believers throughout the world respected the seventh seal and seven thunders.  And never put an interpretation for ten years.  So, preacher what you all used to do in that time concerning the seventh seal / seven thunders?”  We looked forward for the opening of the seventh seal; we looked forward for the opening of the seven thunders.  We looked forward for the third pull Ministry that would do great things for the Bride.  We looked for it to be revealed because we were all conscious (as this church is conscious and I am conscious and all preachers that preached, that it was not opened in 1963), that we need the revealing of the seven thunders for the translation of the Bride.  So when we say that we don’t believe in the opening of the seventh seal in 1963, we are not saying that there is no thunders.  We are not saying that the thunders don’t have to come to the Bride; we are not saying that the seven thunders will not translate the Bride. Everything that the prophet said pertaining to the seven thunders for the Bride, to do whatever he said concerning the seven thunders and the Bride; we believe that just like it was said.  So when we preach like that, they go out, brother, and spread a rumor, that “they don’t believe in Thunders, you know?  The prophet said all those things about the Thunders and they don’t believe in Thunders you know.” We don’t believe your dogma, and your heresy, and your false interpretations of what you’re calling “The thunders”!  We want something genuine, and it is promised to us, and we are going to have it.  He said there is a specific time, there is a specific hour, and a specific day for the seventh seal to be broken to the public, and we are looking for it.  I further state that he said that when it does start it will start in secret somewhere.  All those things are what Brother Branham said. When it starts, it will start in secret somewhere. The Prophet said, “It’s not quite the time for it, but we are moving up into that cycle”.   Brothers and sisters, those are many years friends, those are many years ago, we are moving up into that cycle, Oh my!

NOBODY PUT ANY INTERPRETATION TO THE SEVENTH SEAL

 

We all expected the revealing of the thunders and the seventh seal to take place, Brothers and sisters back in those ten years we had unity, we had love, we had peace, everybody agreed on the seven thunders and seventh seal unopened, we preached the holiness message, we preached Serpent Seed, we preached no three Gods, we preached Malachi 4; everything. We gathered under one tent, we had one Communion Service. I am telling you about this country.  When one preacher came down, the whole country gathered together. There were no divisions on seven thunders and seventh seal. We all wondered about the revelation, and we reverently put no interpretations to It, since we all understood for ten years, to try to interpret the seventh seal, seven thunders, third pull, is death. We realized it was death to interfere with so great a revelation, and we took into consideration, that if the mighty prophet called Elijah the prophet, was so reverent, so respectful that he said that “… I must stop here, I feel checked to stop right here, and say no more on it”. Do you remember those things? And we felt like if he was so reverent and respectful and he would not disclose even some things he knew, then we ought to be respectful and we took his warning very seriously, because he said we will wind our selves off the beaten track and none of us wanted to go off the beaten track, so we respected the thing. So now everybody, or at least ninety-nine percent belonged to Brother Branham’s school that declared that the seventh seal was not revealed.  God revealed some things to him about the seventh seal and he said, “I will give you my revelation”, that is how he termed it; “I will give you my revelation”.

SECOND SCHOOL OPENED IN 1973 –

MANY DEFECTED FROM FIRST SCHOOL

 

Brothers and sisters in 1973 going to 1974 another school was opened up. This is the second school of thought concerning the seventh seal / seven thunders; I say seventh seal /seven thunders, because it is the self same revelation. Another school was opened in 1973 to 1974. Those who came to the Message just prior to that, brothers and sisters could bear me witness that we never had any division on Thunders.  Brother Quacoo you were before that? Lots of people were here before that. It came in 1973; another school was opened.  The second school of thought came into existence in 1973 and people today around the world who are students of this school don’t even know the Principal.  They are going around with a syllabus from the school, and they don’t know, my brothers and sisters, who opened the school; they don’t know the name of the school; they don’t know the Principal, but a lot of them have become teachers in that school, and preachers in that school, and I would say better than seventy percent of the people in the message are now directly or indirectly belonging to that second school of thought, and are preaching from that syllabus that was drawn up in 1973. My brother, saying seventy percent is only a guess because I want to be sure, but I doubt whether there be thirty percent in the world that believe exactly the way Brother Branham taught it and yet belong to his school.

THE SECOND SCHOOL OF THOUGHT-JOSEPH COLEMAN

 

Those that once believed the first school of thought that it was not opened, both old and new preachers and students automatically defected from the first school; so they became defectors from the first school, and went over to the second school.  Here we have a “ Thunders fever” throughout the world and here we have students of that school, preachers of that school, teachers of that school, superintendents of that school, and supervisors of that school, and some of them don’t even know how that school started.  I am sending out this message to you to help you to understand from faithful witnesses here, where this cult of the second school of thought started from.  I make no apology, this is my congregation, and I am at liberty to expose the devil and speak the truth.  And I will boldly state, my brothers and sisters, as a personal witness, how that school started and who started it. I had this for last, but I will give you first.  The man called Joseph Coleman in New York was the first man that came with the idea that the seventh seal was revealed and the seven thunders was revealed, and people that follow this “thunder doctrine” throughout the world my brother, although they don’t recognize Coleman and recognize his church, and although they might be against him, their Thunders trace right back to New York in United States.  The second school of thought is built upon a heresy and it is a cult.  Preachers that respected that thing, brothers and sisters, joined that school and fell for it overnight, like dogs to their vomit, upheld for ten years, and went out following that.  Excuse me my brethren, you know that I am not a racist; but there was an element of race that was involved in this second school, and the doctrine that went out is that God was trying to elevate the Blackman, because he was put down by the white man, therefore God, revealed the Thunders to a Blackman.  It’s a lie of the devil.

 

So then the first thing that went out my brothers and sisters is that God is trying to elevate the Blackman, and the black people catered to that doctrine openly; because they were fooled by that lie.  It went into Africa, and they gladly embraced it. It’s a lie of the Devil!  God is not a racist. All right Brothers and Sisters that was the first man, his name is going to go right into this book.  Any man that will try to break “the silence” for ten years, respect for the Seals, for ten years, is the biggest impersonator that the message world have ever seen, and the biggest impersonator, that the world has ever seen in this Message world. It has corrupted, my brothers and sisters, the whole message world. I make no apology for what I am saying, and who are vex please themselves; in America there, Africa, India, China wherever this will go, “who are vex please themselves”.  This is the Word of the Lord.

ALL FALSE THUNDERS TRACED BACK TO NEW YORK

 

Anytime you see they attack you with thunders, let me tell you, there is a great weapon: Ask them- where you got your thunders from? And when they say-Tom; you say- Where Tom got it from?  They say- Harry; Ask Harry- Where he got it from?  You’re going to find out, my brother, that Dick gave him it, yes.  Ask Dick-where he got it?  And it’s going to trace right back to New York.  Now, but some only reach far as Tom, but they could never understand it came from New York.

 

Misinterpretation on the seventh seal in disobedience to what the prophet of God told them not to do. Didn’t he say if you misinterpret it you will wind yourself off the beaten track?  Well, they are off the beaten track.  If you disobey the prophet, you are going to get into trouble. All right brethren, don’t get tired with me. [Congregation says “No!”].

          

The things that I am telling you here my friends, you aren’t going to hear it nowhere - people are too dishonest.  Everybody wants to run with the Thunders Fever and the so-called Thunders Revival to make them feel that they are in something, and they are spiritual.  I never ran with it – That is why they hate my guts, and they will continue to hate my guts because I am going to speak the truth as long as the Lord give me breath.  Now let this go down under your fifth rib – deep down into your soul.

THE DEATH SEED – THUNDERS REVEALED MYSTERIOUSLY

 

The Death Seed; the Seed of Heresy; the Spirit of Error, that worketh in the children of disobedience.  That man in New York, my brother and sisters, he forcibly twist the message just like Brother Peter writing, an apostle with the keys to the kingdom. He said, some things that Brother Paul wrote are hard to be understood, and they that are unlearned and unstable, they forcibly twist it out of context. Anytime you twist the Word out of context, you do it to your own destruction. And Pastor Coleman twist the Word; and twist the Opening of the Seals; and twist the seven thunders, forcibly out of context. I speak the truth in Christ and lie not- the Lord bearing me witness.

 

And this is the Death seed friends that Pastor Coleman put into the Message- and that is, he said that the seventh seal and seven thunders was mysteriously revealed to Brother Branham; and Brother Branham preached it mysteriously in the message- That’s the Death Seed.  I repeat that- He said Brother Branham mysteriously preached the seventh seal/ seven thunders, and it is hidden in the Message of Brother Branham.  He said, every ‘Thus saith the Lord’ is a thunder. Therefore from Genesis to Revelation is only thunders, thunders, thunders, thunders.

 

 I listen to his tapes to be sure of what I am saying- I listen to Vin’s tapes to be sure of what I am saying. And I listen to these tapes of the heretics to know what I am talking about. So it is not a fool standing before you - I check out these things.

 

“The seventh seal/ seven thunders was mysteriously preached by Brother Branham and it is hiding in the Message; and every ‘Thus Saith the Lord’ is a THUNDER” – that is how he pronounced it.  “Every ‘Thus Saith the Lord’ is a thunder” – that is how he pronounced it.  “Every ‘Thus Saith the Lord’ is a THUNDER… a thunder”.

^Top^

 

MANY BEGAN TO MISINTERPRET SEVEN THUNDERS - 1973

 

 Brothers and sisters, when that Seed was sown, automatically it opened up a door for every ambitious preacher to think that he is finding the Revelation of the Thunders, all by himself in the Message of Brother Branham. My brother, people climbed up their ladder of ambition; their ladders of self; their ladders of pride, Oh Yes!  And that is all that they are filled with, (all of them that preach the so – called thunders) pride, self, ambition, boastful mouths and immorality.

SEVEN THUNDERS IS IN THE PYRAMID – WHICH PYRAMID?

 

That’s the man that forcibly twisted the truth.  When he did that, it opened up a door brothers and sisters, he took something out of context that I have here numbered as fact number twenty four, on the seventh seal - where Brother Branham said that the mystery is held in the pyramid.  You remember me reading that?  Save me some time.  He said the mystery of the seventh seal/ seven thunders is held in the pyramid.  Pastor Coleman took that from the seven seals and he said, “You see! - He said the seven thunders is in the Pyramid.”  He did not even have the understanding to know which Pyramid Brother Branham was speaking about.

 

  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 mysteries of God known only to them. And now, they were the messengers that come to interpret that pyramid or that message of the secret of these Seven Seals which lays with inside the pyramid.” (Seventh Seal 24/3/63).

 

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.  I challenge the world concerning that. There is another pyramid, and that’s the pyramid of the angels.  Each Angel had a seal; therefore the Revelation of the Seals were 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 seventh Angel was the Capstone.  Do you realize that Brother Branham said on ‘Sirs Is This the Time” that the seven thunders is in the capstone? Now you figure that out how you want.   I’ll teach you it one of these days. I will take up that as a message. The seven thunders is in the Capstone. You remember when he took a lever out of nowhere and opened up Junior Jackson’s Pyramid, and he pulled the cap off, and nobody could read it? That had to do with the seven thunders.

 

14-15 Brother Jackson." …He said, "I dreamed that there was a great big hill, like out in a field where bluegrass..." And said, "Up on top of this hill, where the water had washed away the soil, there was a top rock up on top of the hill; like the top of the mountain. It was rock, no grass. And where the water had washed down, it had cut some kind of readings on these stones, and you were standing there interpreting this reading on these stones."…"Then you picked up something, like from the air, something like a wrecking bar, or a crowbar,”real sharp”…And said, "You struck the top of that mountain, ripped it around, and lifted the cap of it off. It was in the shape of a pyramid. And you ripped the top of it off." Now, that was months and months and months before the pyramid message was preached. And said, "Beneath that was white stone, granite, and you said, 'The light, has never shined on this before. Look in on this. Watch this." (Sirs is this the time? 30/12/63).

 

                47-4    Junie, I want to take your dream…You notice, the writing that was on the rocks; I was interpreting it for them. They were elated. That's the mystery of God that's been not understood for years. Could that be that? And then notice. In some mysterious way, we picked up out of the air a sharp tool that opened up the top, and in there was white granite, but it wasn't interpreted. There was no letters. I didn't interpret that, Junior. I just looked at it, and said to the brethren, "Look on this," and that's fulfilled tonight. While they were studying that, I slipped towards the west. What for? Maybe to understand the interpretation of what's written in the top of this. Could it be? (Sirs is this the time? 30/12/63).

SEVEN THUNDERS IS NOT THE SEVEN VIRTUES

 

The third pyramid that Brother Branham spoke about is this – the Stature of a Perfect Man.  Pastor Coleman, if the seven virtues are the seven thunders, then Brother Branham preached them in 1962 when he preached the pyramid Message.  And if that is so, he could not say in 1963 that it was NOT revealed to him.  You have told the world a lie; and you need to hold on to the cross and beg for mercy; and repent for your dogma and your creed.

^Top^

 

SEVEN THUNDERS MYSTERIOUSLY REVEALED BY W.M.B., IS A LIE!

 

That is the man that opened up the second school of thought. And the Death Seed is when that man said that the seven thunders were revealed, preached mysteriously by Brother Branham, and it is in the message.

 

 Beloved, we went through all the major quotes from 1962 to 1965. Did you hear anything like that?  Let me hear your voices. [Congregation says “No!”].  You heard where Brother Branham ever indicated that, “the seven thunders are revealed, the seventh seal is revealed, but it is mysteriously”? [Congregation says “No!”]. All right my brothers, but concerning the seven trumpets, Brother Branham said it was preached mysteriously under the sixth seal.  That is where Pastor Coleman is typing from.  He is typing out the seven trumpets, how Brother Branham preached it mysteriously under the sixth seal. He got an idea in his head that the seven thunders was preached mysteriously also.  You lie!  If that had happened, Brother Branham would say that- but he never said that.

^Top^

 

OTHER MISINTERPRETATIONS THAT WENT WITH FALSE THUNDERS

 

When that Death Seed came out, there was another thing that went with it. I don’t have time for it.  Now if a man claims that the seven thunders are revealed, everything that pertains to the seven thunders in the message, he has to find an interpretation for it. Understand what I’m saying?

 

There are many things concerning the seven thunders.  If a man claims that the seven thunders are revealed, he has to find an interpretation for the New Name; He has to find an interpretation, my brother, for the Outpouring; He has to find an interpretation for all those things that the prophet said. He said that it is going to break a Bride’s Revival.  He said, “the Bride has never had a revival yet, it will take the seven unknown thunders to wake her up.”  Therefore at that time Coleman broadcasted that the Bride’s Revival had started; and the Latter Rain had fallen.  Yes Sir. When a man claims that the seven thunders are revealed, he has to justify all the promises that pertain to the seven thunders. So at that time, they made the new Name- the Word of God.  Another version came out where the New Name is Jesus.  Now they have around, where the new Name is- Branham. Oh Yes!   And there are many new names that came up.  Word of God- is one of the versions.  So when you are going to raise the dead, you have to go over the dead and say, “In the Name of the Word of God, be healed.” You’re a fanatic!  You are just flat out a fanatic!

 

When you claim that the seven thunders were revealed, you have to connect a lot of things that goes with that seven thunders. So now, the first thing that came out of that is that they said that the seven thunders are revealed, but it is hiding in the message, and they proclaimed that the Bride’s Revival had broken. That went out around the world and everybody was in a Bride’s Revival; and then after that they said a Sealing Revival broke in 1984.  And the majority were sealed by the Devil because they went out and lived in adultery and fornication, lie, steal and curse.

WHY MANY DEFECTED TO SECOND SCHOOL

 

People that never preached the thunders jumped on the bandwagon.  I had good preacher friends that just jumped on the bandwagon to save their churches, because when that started to move through the country, if you weren’t saying, “thunders, thunders, thunders”, you were considered unspiritual.  And these sharks were coming to eat up the fish.  So in order for these men to save their churches, they started saying, “Yes, we see the thunders!” and they had their own version of it.  So friends of mine, who never preached those “thunders”, jumped on the bandwagon and started preaching “thunders” in order to save their churches. But we had something keeping us here. And I invited them right behind this pulpit, I said come and preach your thunders, come preach your thunders because it might have elect, and that elect is ordained to see your thunders, and if anybody believe, take them and go. They never got one sheep, because it was not the thunders.

 

I defy the thunders being the seven virtues. It’s of the devil! The seven thunders is not the seven virtues, it’s the coming of the Lord! It’s the event of the opening of the seals. Christ is now standing on earth, believe it or not! And Jesus is yet in heaven, Jesus is still on the altar of sacrifice, but Christ is now on earth. I am not He, and I don’t know anybody that is present that is He, but He is on earth.

 

That’s the man right up in New York. Now you see how long this message could get brothers. When you claim that the seventh seal is opened and the seven thunders is revealed, you have to go right through the message and justify everything that is spoken concerning seven thunders: That it is in the capstone etc. Since the seven thunders is in the capstone and it is revealed, they went out with a doctrine that the capstone already came. You see how it is related? The capstone is yet to come, it is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, Brother Branham said. Now I could go on and relate all these things. I studied this thing from 1973, up to this point, and I studied the ins and the out of it, not that I was looking for truth (the message is truth), but I was looking to fight this devilish doctrine, and I have their number. It’s a seed of discrepancy! It’s a lie of the devil; and the foundation of the second school of thought is built on misinterpretations of the seven thunders. That is the story of the thunders. That is where it started. That is why you hear all kinds of things about new Name, latter rain fell, and seven thunders seven virtues.

^Top^

OTHER INTERPRETATIONS ON THE THUNDERS

 

Other interpreters climbed a little higher, and now they say that Pastor Coleman was wrong, it was not seven virtues, it was at the opening of the seals the full Word of God came, and Christ is the thunders, and in Him has everything. In this Christ has the latter rain, He has the translation, He has the rapture, He has the capstone, He has the third pull, He has everything in Him, and as long as you accept the message you have everything in you for the rapture; it can take place any day. That is the height that went up to.

 

So now they have the full Word of God, at the seals now, as the Joshua commission. Everything is in there. The white horse is in there; the white eagle is inside of there. They condensed all the promises of God, that Brother Branham was expected to fulfill in his life time and ministry, and he did not; they condensed it in that one term, “the Word is Christ, it is the opening of the seals.” “There is no more outpouring, no more revival to come, everything is in the Word.” “As long as you believe the Word you are ready for the rapture.” But look on the other hand, and see that they destroyed the holiness message. It (the thunders) should take them on a higher plain, but they destroyed the holiness message. I hope I’m not confusing you.

 

Now you see how many related subjects by that one door of heresy being opened, they have to misinterpret. So now many other doctrines arose concerning seventh seal/seven thunders which will take us another week or two, if I will just bring out a little bit on each doctrine. Out of that doctrine came several Parousia doctrines. Yes. That’s a big thing. Out of that doctrine came eighth messengers. They climbed a little higher and say, it’s not the Word, it is not the thunders, it’s an eighth messenger, and he has the thunders. So we have one raise up in the Philippines and hundreds raise up in United States, and some raise up in South America. We have others raise up in Africa and South Africa, and the whole world is filled with eighth messengers and all preaching seventh seal/seven thunders. Can we finish in a couple weeks? [Congregation says, “No!”].

 

So now this heresy that started in New York has different variations, different schools open up, different branches open up, so now the second school of thought have tens of thousands of different syllabus, different teachers and different preachers. We don’t belong to it; it’s of the devil! Jump high or jump low it’s of the devil, and I know what I’m talking about, don’t you ever get frightened for me at all. When I preach this message, I’ll go inside and lie down and sleep for five hours and get up again comfortable as ever. I am no nervous wreck friend. I speak the truth in Christ and lie not. I know what I am talking about. You hang your soul on what I am saying.

TWO FOLDS OF SEVENTH SEAL REVEALED – THIRD FOLD

NOT REVEALED TO W.M.B.

 

We believe the facts of the seventh seal. Brother Branham said about the time close to the rapture, as we move closer to that, the seventh seal will be broken to the public, but it will be going on in secret somewhere, before that time. That heresy spread right through the world, and the whole picture is that if you are not preaching the thunders (so-called), you are unspiritual. That is how it is. “You mean at Bethel down there they don’t preach the thunders?” “Boy, we feel sorry for those people. They need deliverance. I think we need to go and tell them about the thunders.” “So I will get on the pulpit and I would say that God revealed it to me. I will quote Brother Branham, ‘God revealed it to me in a three fold manner’.” You lie! You lie! You are taking it out of context. “God revealed to me-it’s in a three fold manner. He revealed two folds to me and the third fold was in an unknown language. One fold I will give you, one fold I will keep and the next fold God will keep.” That’s what it said. That’s what he said. There is a specific time for it to be broken to the public.

 

Oh my! You visitors, I hope I’m not boring you. This may be very foreign to you, I don’t like to bore people but this is so important for us that I got to go on. So you visitors, if you are bored with my message and you want to go out to the facilities, go get some water, the Lord bless you, this is not the regular trend, come back again.

 

Oh beloved, don’t you see it children? So now that spread right through the world, right through the world. All right, now the very quotations that we use to see in the books and hear on the tapes now, and never thought that it was opened, now with that death seed, everybody start seeing quotation here, quotation there and it built up into a sore ball of pride. So you have a version in the Exodus. Oh yes! “Thunders” in the Exodus, white eagle flying, seven trumpets blowing, a ball of pride. My beloved I think that we are just one church here, together with just a handful, that don’t preach the dogma on the thunders. Right in this country some are sitting and waiting for the resurrection of Brother Branham to come back with the thunders.

FALSE THUNDERS DIVIDED BROTHERHOOD

 

You see the conglomeration children?  Am I coming over right Brother Chandler?  Now can you imagine the thunders confusion?  Now if that was the thunders, it never would have gotten into such confusion, because the thunders is to unite the Bride.  But what has the so-called thunders done? We had unity before 1973.  We had oneness before 1973, and if anything came after 1973 that divides brotherhood in the message, it is of the devil. I make no apology, for false thunders from New York divides brotherhood.  They are pulling swords against one another throughout the world.

 

 Eighth messengers arose, and needless to say, brothers and sisters, the seven thunders revival that they claimed ended up in confusion.  People hate the interpreter, yes, separated from him, those that claimed to had gotten sealed and ready for the rapture fell in adultery and some of them died from AIDS.  Is that the thunders?  Is that what the thunders suppose to produce?  You say, “You can’t put everybody in a certain category. There are one or two groups among them that are faithful, preaching the true thunders.” Where did, he get it?  Who interpreted it?  Who gave him it?  Was he able to read the unknown language that Brother Branham could not read?

 

The seven thunders was only hiding in one place, and that is under the unknown language.  Who is there to read it?  There is only one that holds it and that is the seventh Angel and He is a flying Angel who picked up the earthly angel.  Before the people go in the rapture, who follow this message, they will have to humble their hearts.  The worst mental delusion that ever crossed this message is when they said that the thunders was mysteriously revealed.

DEFENDERS OF FALSE THUNDERS

 

So now that our Exposition books have gone out, tracts and some tapes, they are arising from every secret chamber, arising from every secret closet, and some are coming out of their dens.  Those books, my brothers and sisters, exposed their false thunders and told them that they are a cult; so different ones are arising who followed this thing from 1973 up to date. 

 

Twenty-nine years the false anointed ones had to sow their seeds and over night Exposition books went out and are causing some trouble. The last one, the response that we got from it, is that they said, it is the greatest book ever written and it’s a masterpiece- Five Doctrinal Divisions Message Believers- showing that all the people that follow the message in the world fit into one of these five categories and only one category is right.

 

The demands for that book are great. They want them by the stacks and it is causing a stir, but it is causing “thunders” men, “thunders” heroes, “thunders” teachers, “thunders” preachers to come out of their holes like zandolees [Lizards. Ed.] to attack the Word of God. They want to know who is this little fellow, who are these people? I am inside there fighting the battle.  It’s letters after letters, fax after fax.  I’m fighting the strong bulls of Bashan, and the oaks of Lebanon are falling. I am not saying this boastfully my brothers and sisters, not one of them is able to withstand the Word of God.

 

I will read some letters of opposition one of these days and I will read some letters that I wrote to counteract them.  In every angle they came they were whipped.  Everyone that claimed the thunders, there is only one question that I’m asking them: “Who interpreted the unknown language? Who interpreted the unknown language to you to get the seven thunders?”  They jump like a rabbit here and there.  I said, “Come back to the question.” Two letters…three letters.  I said, “Come back right here.  Who interpreted the unknown language to you to get the seven thunders?  What is the coming of the Lord? It is hiding under the seven thunders.  How He came? Where He came?  You got to tell me that.”  Oh it’s too much! 

 

So one fellow got some of our books. He wrote me a letter and he sent me two books here- “Seven Seals are Opened”; “Seven Thunders are Revealed”.  He put no name on his bullets.  He put no address where I could reach him.  He told me the next book I write, write a book of corrections.  I am doing that right now sir, but to you. And if these two books are heretical and you have no name on it and no address, I will have to put a name and an address.  The author is a heretic and the address is hell (The regions of the lost). That shows that you are a coward!  I put my name and my ministers put their names on our books and gave you our addresses. If you could defend your perversion of Brother Branham’s message and there is no name and no address on your books, you are a coward.  I don’t know if you are a man or a woman. It more looks to me like a woman, and if you are a man you have on a dress.

 

So, I will read Mr. Heretic’s letter addressed from hell (The regions of the lost). Quote:

 

“AN ANSWER TO EXPOSITION OF DAMNABLE HERESIES

 

 It is a sad day when the Truth of the Message is called a damnable Heresy.  You need to check all of the Quotes on a subject before

Printing man’s interpretation of certain subjects. 

   On Page 55 Heretical article 11, “ the thunders were revealed by

Bro.Branham.” They were! Where have you been for the past 35

Years? The quotes by the prophet says they were. Can’t you

Accept his words?

 On Page 30, the statement was made: “the 7th Seal was not

Opened by Bro. Branham.” Such a false statement, when all the 

7 Seals were opened.  They are mysteries, and every mystery was

revealed by the 7’th angel of Rev.10:7.” 

Read These quotes I send, and then print another book of

Correction.  The Word always corrects the error!”

 

This is subtle isn’t it?  Let me answer you here sir because, you said to answer you in another book.

 

“…It is a sad day when the truth of the message is called a damnable heresy.”

 

We are not calling the message a damnable heresy.  We are calling the cult of the thunders that started in New York with a death seed (you have your navel string buried down there), we call that a heresy. 

 

“You need to check all of the quotes on a subject before printing man’s interpretation of certain things.” 

 

You are guilty of that.  You gave me quotations and you jump like a rabbit from beginning to end.  I have fulfilled your request on Sunday. I have checked all the quotations from 1962 to 1965 and you will get this book also. 

 

“On page 55 Heretical article 11, “the thunders were revealed by Brother Branham.” They were! Where have you been for the past 35 Years.  The Quotes by the prophet says they were. Can’t you Accept his words?” 

 

Yes, I could accept his words but I refuse to accept your dogma.  Where have I been for the thirty five years?  In school number one.  I have been going to school in school number one (Brother Branham’s school), and I am asking you since when you joined school number two.

 

“…the 7 Seals were opened. They are mysteries, and every mystery was revealed by the 7’th angel of Rev.10:7.” 

 

One was not revealed, sir!  According to the facts of the seventh seal, he said one was not revealed to him, and that one which was not revealed was outside of the book.  You are mixing up two different things.  The mystery inside of the book was revealed by Revelation 10:7, and all were revealed; but there is a mystery outside of the book and there is a flying Angel holding that one-mystery. You are mixing up the flying angel with the walking angel. 

 

“Read These quotes I send, and then print another book of Correction.”

 

We are doing that now sir and I hope you could read it.

 

“The Word always corrects the error!”

 

Amen! And this is what the Word is going to do right now.  I am on the subject of seventh seal Misinterpretation, therefore I bring your subject under consideration before many hundreds of people, and you are stating here, on a twenty-four-page book, that the seventh seal was revealed, and you have a five-page book that the seven thunders was revealed.  The very reason you have a five-page book on the thunders revealed, you are force fitting your doctrine into the message.  I am preaching that the seventh seal is not revealed and I can’t finish up until now.  Sunday was two and three-quarter hours and tonight might be three hours and we aren’t finished yet.  Oh yes, I will pick you up on the subtitle that you have here, Mr. whosoever you are, man or woman, and you quote a scripture here to prove that the seventh seal was opened.  The scripture you are quoting here- Revelation 8:1: “And when he had opened the seventh seal there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.”

 

Brothers and sisters these intellectual giants from the first world put us third world people to shame.  They cannot read their own Bibles. They cannot understand English.  Don’t make a third world country man teach you how to read your Bible, sir. Anybody could have read that in the days of Martin Luther in Revelation 8:1 when he translated the Bible- “And when he had opened the seventh seal” and claim the same thing that the seventh seal was opened in the days of Luther.  So your scripture has no foundation.  Brother Branham read this same scripture in Rev. 8:1 and concluded that it was not revealed so your scripture cannot stand up.  You are misplacing the Word of God.  Now hear this. We quoted him, Mr. Interpreter, just like he said it.  He is giving me a quotation from the seventh seal to prove that the seal was opened and that is what they do.  They take out quotations here and there from the seventh seal and picking like white fowls, but they would not eat much of it, and when they write their books and come to the pulpit they say, “here you see, he said it is open.  Here he said it is open.” But they pull it and twist it subtily and wrest the scripture and take it out of its scriptural context to make it say what it did not say.

 

The way I will counteract this misquotation is by the quotation of Brother Branham and reading it in its own context.  This man stated here-Quote:

 

  557-2 “No angels singing, no praises, no--no altar service, no nothing. There was silence, hush, deadly silence in heaven for a half hour. All the host of heaven was silent for this half hour, when this Seventh Seal mystery in the Book of Redemption was broke open. Think of it; but it's broke. The Lamb breaks it. (Seventh Seal 24/3/63).”

 

This man is using page 557 to show where Brother Branham said the seventh seal was broken. You know what he done, he took out just a little part from the context of it and even stopped abruptly in the paragraph to just make Brother Branham say what he did not want to say.  I will prove you a liar right now.  That is exactly what the serpent done in the Garden of Eden.  Oh yes.  He said, “Ye shall not surely die”.  I am going to read it to this congregation and we are all familiar with it and I am going to show you that you are a liar and you are misinterpreting the Word of God.  I am going to read your quotation first. Right there, he stopped short. All right, he continues here:

 

557 (2)   “ All the host of heaven was silent for this half hour, when this Seventh Seal mystery in the Book of Redemption was broke open. Think of it; but it's broke. The Lamb breaks it. You know what? They were awed by it, I believe. They didn't know. There it was; they just stopped. Why? What is it?”

               

I will continue to read now:

 

557-3 “Now, none of us know; but I'm--I'm going to tell you my revelation of it. And now, I am not prone to be a fanatic. If I am, I'm ignorant of it. See? I am--I'm not given away to such as "leerious" or carry-ons and imaginary things. I've said some things might been kind of strange to some people, but when God comes around behind it and vindicates it and says it's the Truth, then that's God's Word. It may seem strange that way. See?

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. And then you... Let's go over there first. Here's the revelation to begin what... I want to tell you what it is. What happens is that those seven thunders that he heard thunder and was forbidden to write, that's what the mystery is laying behind those seven consecutive thunders rolling out.

  557-5 Now, why? Let us prove it. Why? It is the secret that no one knows about.”

 

My brothers and sisters, this man is failing to quote all the words of the prophet, and Brother Branham, in what this man is quoting here just now, Brother Branham is speaking of what was going on in heaven, about that time when the Bible said, “And He took the Book and opened the seals…and there was a hush in heaven.” So he is painting that picture back there of what John had seen, when it read there that when he had taken the book and opened the first Seal unto to the seventh Seal, when he came to the seventh Seal everything hushed. But then Brother Branham continued to speak now, and he said, “We don’t know that revelation”.

 

All right, this man, he tried to find quotations…and I don’t have time with his nonsense! You will get the facts of the Seventh Seal, and you’d better check over your heresy and dogma with Brother Branham’s words and quotations.  All right.  This man run straight out of quotations until he had to quote directly from the seventh seal and contradict his own self. Now the name of this book is  “Seven Seals Revealed” – the subtitle is “seven seals opened”, and hear what this man put in his book:

 

 “One of the mystery 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; wasn't even written. So we're at the end time; we are here.” 568-2{335}SEVENTH.SEAL.THE JEFF. IN SUNDAY 63-0324E”

 

That is my quotation.  That is Brother Branham’s quotation.  God made you contradict your own self.  This is page 17, I am quoting from sir, if you forgot your book, and then on the same page I am quoting:

 

“… 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. 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. 567-1  {322} SEVENTH.SEAL.THE_  JEFF.IN  SUNDAY_  63-0324E”.  Page 17.

 

This is my quotation.  This is what I am resting on.  You are confused.  The name of your book is “Seven Seals Revealed” and you put quotations to prove that one was not revealed.

 

Your subtitle says, “Seven seals opened” and you put quotations in here to prove it was not revealed and Brother Branham did not know anything about it.  Next quotation (three in a row).

 

“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. 576-3  {394} SEVENTH.SEAL.THE_  JEFF.IN  MONDAY_  63-0324E” Page 17.

 

I use these quotations to prove my subject; you put it here, so this is very helpful to me. Oh yes. I am going to read again:

 

“...We find that Christ, the Lamb took the--the Book in His hand, 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. 576-3  {394} SEVENTH.SEAL.THE_  JEFF.IN  MONDAY_  63-0324E” Page 14.

 

“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. 576-5  {397} SEVENTH.SEAL.THE_  JEFF.IN  MONDAY_  63-0324E”     Page 14.

               

                “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 a... 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 we--we--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. 575-6 {392} SEVENTH.SEAL.THE JEFF.IN  MONDAY_  63-0324E”  Page 16.

 

“Remember the Seven Seals is finished. And when those seven revealed truths... One of them He wouldn't permit us to know. We... How many was here at the Seven Seals? Just about all of you, I guess. See? The--the Seventh Seal, He wouldn't permit it.  23-4 SOULS.IN.PRISON.NOW_  JEFF.IN  V-2 N-22  SUNDAY_  63-1110M” Page 22.

 

  “That Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know; that's His coming. 26-4   FEAST.OF.THE.TRUMPETS -  JEFF.IN  V-3 N-16  SUNDAY_  64-0719M”  Page 22.

 

This man is very supportive to “Exposition of Damnable Heresies.”  So I have to say with all respect, sir, you are talking nonsense, and you have shamed the third world country people.  It looks like you are from the first world, filled with all that American pride and pomp, that caused you all to interpret the words of the prophet and try to damn the rest of the world. Oh yes!

 

Now on page 11 you are making sir, this Angel that held the Seventh Seal, you are making Him Revelation 10:7, and it’s a lie of the devil.  The one that held the 7th Seal is a flying Angel, and He flew away with it, and He was the one with the rest of the angels who picked up the earthly angel, so you are definitely confused and you have taken these things out of context. I am going to read this here; this is your book page 10:

 

 “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. 564-2 {301} SEVENTH.SEAL.THE_  JEFF.IN  SUNDAY  63-0324E

 

You misconstrued the quotation, and that is fact number 10 and 11 you’re trying to misinterpret. When I send out this book and I have these facts lined out like that, I want you African Ministers to study this book.  Brother Mawino…if I am pronouncing your names right…Kachanje, Sagay and Brother Matimbe, and our precious Brother Gaitan; whenever they turn up the quotations, I want you to take that book and refer to it and say, “You are not speaking according to fact number ten, fact number eleven, fact number thirty, you’re perverted.

 

It is fact numbers ten and eleven that this man is perverting here.  He is trying to show that all the revelation was supposed to have been revealed to Revelation 10:7, therefore he opened the Seventh Seal.  I am going to give you it in its right context. The Seventh Seal, page 564 (4).

 

564 (4)“…Notice now, for the end of time message this Seal, after all... He--He's revealed all the six Seals, but it don't say nothing about the Seventh…” 

 

Unquote sir, you left that part out and you are forcefully twisting the Word of God, and you are wresting the scriptures to your own destruction.

 

“…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.”

 

We believe all of that. Brother Branham, I believe, looked forward for the opening of the seventh seal, right through his life, but then he understood differently, but he emphasized that six seals were revealed. Yes.

 

He also twisted another quotation, right here on page 564 paragraph two, in the very same manner. I don’t have time with you. You are trying to prove that seven seals were opened. Now this is the proof, that was used in this book, and that is basically what they use around the world.

^Top^

 

“SEVEN SEALS REVEALED” TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT

 

Now everywhere that Brother Branham say, “The seven seals were revealed the other day,” “You remember when He opened the seven seals?”, “You remember when I preached the seven seals?” I will give you a few of their quotations. Some of it, my brother, is taken from “The rising of the sun,” “Standing in the gap,” “Souls in prison, invisible union,” “Marriage and divorce,” “What is the attraction on the mountain,” “Seed not heir with the shuck,” and a few others here showing you that the Book is opened. So now these intellectual giants, they went on, and when the prophet of God is speaking and say, “You remember when the seven seals were opened the other day”; they went through all his tapes and picked out all of that and said, “You see where the prophet said that the seven seals (not six), seven seals were opened. Don’t you believe the prophet?” Forcibly twisting the Word of God out of context.

 

All right, Brother Bruce how do you account for that? Brother Bruce, in defending “Exposition of Damnable Heresies,” how do we stand against these Goliaths of America and these giants of America, against all these heresies that they try to push down our throats? Let them know from the seven seals that Brother Branham said that six seals were revealed and one was not revealed, and when Brother Branham said on his tapes and books, “The other day when the seven seals were opened,” he is not referring to seven individual seals, but he is referring to the event of 1963, and he is referring to the seven-sealed Book. He is referring to the seven- sealed Book – the Book that was sealed with seven seals.

 

I have the proof right here for you brethren, and I am going to quote it. Now don’t get tired (you’re going to get five or six days off; go and enjoy it, have a good time, come back here to fast and pray over the weekend; fast out the Kentucky, all the McDonald, let us empty our souls).

 

  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).

 

Brother Branham started to say seven seals, but when he caught himself, he thinks that somebody is understanding that all seven are opened, and then he said, “I mean the six seals,” and he explained now, he said, “Remember one of them He would not reveal.” That is 1963 the eleventh month. I will read another one:

 

23-4   076   “Now we see these things. 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).

 

I am proving to you that that’s a terminology that Brother Branham used, a “phraseology” that Brother Branham used about 1963, when the seven seals were opened, and it was not seven identical seals he was talking about, he was talking about the event of 1963, not the “mysterious event”, but the preaching of the seals. And then, when he caught himself saying, “seven seals were opened”, he would stop and explain; he said, “one of them remember he wouldn’t permit it.” So it was a terminology and a phraseology that the Prophet used by saying “Seven Seals were revealed.” Doubt it anybody! You can’t! I challenge the world.

 

“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 24/11/63).

 

The book is open but we are still waiting on something, and that is when the coming of the Lord is understood it will identify the seventh seal.

 

“That Seventh Seal hasn't opened yet, you know; that's His coming.” (Feast of the Trumpets 19/7/64).

 

Where were you for the past fifty years friend? What school are you going to? Didn’t you read that in “Feast of the Trumpet.”  Excuse the loudness; but something stirs up on the inside when I hear foolishness, big men talking foolishness, intellectual, smart, subtle.

               

“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).

 

 How many seals he said were opened? [Congregation says, “Six”]. Six.

 

“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 16/8/64).

 

You have the seventh seal? Are you manifesting the fullness of the word? You have the seven thunders? Is the body manifesting the fullness of this word? Have we gone back to Pentecost?  Absolutely not! Now that is 1964 now. Now Brother Branham said on “God of this Evil Age” (I explained that already) he was down there to preach the seven thunders. All right.

 

“Just wait till we get in to open those plagues and seals and them seven thunders. Watch what takes place. Oh, brother, you better get to Goshen while there's time to get to Goshen. Don't pay any attention to this outside.” (Knoweth it not 15/8/65).

 

You know what that is? Goshen is the only place that judgment won’t be falling. The thunders have to do with the judgments of God, so you’d better run down to Goshen before it comes to the public. Let me get a good one here, All right. 

 

140There it's in the magazine. Told months before it happened. 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 3/8/63).

               

Seven angels came down and told him that the six-seal mystery will be unfolded and it happened exactly the way that he said it. The six seals were supposed to be opened before the seventh.

 

36-3 “Remember, all trumpets sound on this Sixth Seal. The Sixth Seal finishes the mystery--under the Sixth Seal just before the Seventh opened.” “(Feast of the trumpets 19/7/64)

 

Six seals were to be opened first and then the seventh seal was to follow. Now who could doubt that? I’ll read this again.

 

23-4 “Remember the Seven Seals is finished. And when those seven

revealed truths... One of them He wouldn't permit us to know. We... How many was here at the Seven Seals? Just about all of you, I guess. See? The--the Seventh Seal, He wouldn't permit it. He stood right there in the room and revealed every one of them, and if I ever preached anything in my life was inspired, it was that…And remember, in that Sixth Seal, where all Seven Trumpets sounds under that Sixth Seal... When we get to that, you'll see that. Every Seven Trumpet took place in that Sixth Seal. The seven is always a mystery. Watch that seven; that's the finish. That was the coming of the Lord. Heaven was quiet, silent. Nobody moved, because Jesus said Himself, "Not even an Angel of heaven knows when I will return. I don't even know it myself, what time. The Father has put that in His mind. God alone knows it: the Spirit. But I didn't know it." See, it wasn't revealed when that Seventh Trumpet sounded, or the Seventh Angel or--Seal was opened, then there was silence in the heaven: See? It wasn't give away, what would take place.” (Souls in prison 10/11/63).

 

These two books… the gentleman, whoever you are, man or woman, you have no backbone, or you would put your name and address to it and you would let me know who you are so that we can make war. You have misinterpreted the Word of God and you better trace back the seed from where you were borned. Trace back the seed from where you were borned. You have given isolated quotations. My brothers and sisters, can you give me a few minutes again? Let me put in these things. You may know these things but other people don’t know them.

SECOND SCHOOL’S QUOTATIONS – ONLY FOUR

 

There are three or four major quotes that sounds like Brother Branham is saying that the thunders are revealed, and in the whole thunders-world, thunder message people, they only have about three quotes that looks like Brother Branham is saying that the thunders are revealed. For ten years they never brought up those quotations, because we were all convinced from the seventh seal that Brother Branham did not open the seventh seal. But then in 1973, everybody got bright and those quotations are what they are using except these misinterpretations of thunders and seals (that they are trying to misinterpret) taking it out of context.

 

So now in your seal book you find that they will pull out certain things that Brother Branham say that “the seal was revealed”, “the seal was broke” this and that, but they would not read it in its context. So that is how they make these books. You don’t bother with that.

 

So now, the quotations, I did not read it the last time. I want to do that for the tape and for the Book’s sake. I know you got a little tired now but bear a little patience with me; these are souls that we are trying to deliver. So we have about one, two, three, four quotations that they think are saying that the seven thunders are revealed. I will quote them to you and I will explain them.

 

“We find out over here in Revelations 10, "In the days of the Message of the seventh angel, the mysteries of God should be finished," the Seventh Seal would be pulled back. It should be there. Then all at once, when it's happening, a vision broke, said, "Go to Tucson, a great noise will take place at this time so you'll be thoroughly understanding and know that it's sent.” (Shalom 12/1/64).

 

The prophet of God is actually referring to something that happened before 1963. He says that the seven seals will be pulled back. Brother Branham was a man of faith. He was expecting all seven seals to be revealed, and he went to Arizona with the hope that all the seals will be revealed. After 1963, he concluded, by forty different facts, that “it was held from him, and it was not revealed.” How can intellectual men go off on something so vague is beyond me! The prophet of God brought forty facts to prove to you that the seventh seal was not revealed, and a man wants to go off on something like that where Brother Branham said that the seventh seal will be pulled back.

 

Now, people are very empty in this message, and they only have one thing that is deceiving them, and that is “mysteriously revealed.” So they think they are finding the mystery when they read there. That is the only thing that is singing in their heads, “mysteriously revealed.”

 

 After Brother Branham explained forty facts to show them the placing of the seventh seal, the placing of the seven thunders, why it was not revealed; in 1964, hear what somebody is going to write and ask the prophet. Hear this fellow’s thoughts. He’s asking this question concerning his own interpretation and own thoughts. He is expressing his own interpretation of the thunders and his own thoughts. Hear this.

 

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)..

 

Imagine a man asking the prophet such a question, after, perhaps, sitting there in 1963 with all that explanation, that you would now ask the prophet such a question. Isn’t there an interpretation in that person’s mind, that he has a seed but he wants it confirmed by the prophet? Isn’t this sounding here as if it is mysteriously revealed and it is hiding in the seals, but we don’t make it out as yet? 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? First answer of Brother Branham is “No.” Second answer is, “Yea, yea, they are revealed in the seven seals.” Where? Where is the seven thunders revealed in the seals? We went through the whole seals last week. Did you find the seven thunders in there? Well then my brother, they are hanging on the letter then. They are hanging on words.

 

Something is said here, you must be able to prove it; you must be able to understand it. He said that it is in the seals, okay, let us go to the seals. So now this here is the third quotation, after this (Brother Barrow) they have none. With all the thunders around the world, and all the interpretations from New York, and all the big names, they have nothing to stand upon in the prophet’s message, other than these four quotations here, and the misinterpretation of the seven seals, and where Brother Branham said seven seals were revealed. Could you hang your soul on that?

 

All right. This in the Church Ages is the most powerful quotation that they use; yet they cannot prove it. How many knows that the Church Ages was preached in 1960? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. You cannot find this quotation nowhere on tape. I am saying that this quotation that I am about to read is not in accordance with the message of Brother Branham. Brother Branham’s message states that, “six seals were opened, the seventh seal was not revealed, and the seventh angel was to open the six seal mystery.” Did we just read it? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. That’s the mission of the seventh angel, was to open the six seal mystery. Brother Branham declared that.

 

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 page 327).

 

I am here to state to you that this statement is contrary to the teachings of Brother Branham, and anybody that wants to pick me up on that, anywhere could pick me up on that. There are also other contrary doctrines that were injected into the church ages teachings, which we can prove that they are wrong, and they have been injected into the Word of God, and I cite one for the convenience of the tape, and anyone who wants to pick me up can pick me up on that. Quoting from Exposition of the Seven Church Ages:

               

144-2-3 “Now before we leave this subject I want to make myself very clear on what the Baptism with the Holy Ghost is according to the Word. It is not according to me, and it is not according to you. It has to be according to "Thus saith the Lord," or we are falsely led. Amen…I want to tell you exactly what I mean. I mean for the sinner to come forward and be born again, which is to be baptized into the body of Christ by the Holy Ghost which is exactly what took place at Pentecost when the church was launched. In other words, to be born of the Spirit is to be truly baptized with the Holy Ghost. It is one and the same." (Church Ages Book).

 

Brother Branham stated in many places, that the New Birth and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost are two separate, different experiences:

 

37 “And the new birth, as people talks that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is the new birth. Now, that's wrong. The baptism of the Holy Ghost is different from the new birth. The new birth is when you're born again. But the Holy Ghost is when power comes into that birth for service. That's exact. See?” (Countdown 62-0909).

 

114 “And borned again does not necessarily mean now that you got the Holy Ghost. Now, remember. Now, many teach that. "I don't know anybody that teaches it like this," as old Brother Arganbright said the other night from the pulpit here. See? But new birth is not the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Scripture doesn't support it, I don't think (See?), to my way of seeing it. See? (Key.to.the.Door  62-1007).

 

 

Our precious Brother Vayle, we can see from the following quotations, that he was not too clear, and in full agreement with scriptural doctrines taught by Brother Branham, even at the time of the editing of the Church Ages Book. It’s possible that Brother Vayle has changed his misconception since that time, being now more matured in the Word. His rebaptism only took place in 1963, after the Church Ages were preached, and also the seals. Any person that loves Brother Vayle as we do, could very well understand that he did his best as a theologian, trying to edit a new message of Elijah the prophet, and some of his theology would have unintentionally been injected into the great and elaborate messages of the Church Ages. That does not give anybody the authority to establish other vital doctrines based upon such misconceptions, since they are inconsistent with the teachings and revelation of the prophet.

 

194 “Brother Lee Vayle, if you get ahold of this, here it is. That's the only question we disagree on; he believes the church will go through the judgment. I don't see it. I don't believe it.” (Oneness 11/2/62).

 

“Brother Lee Vayle was just here today. I baptized him today in the baptismal service here today.” (Paul a prisoner 17/7/63).

 

“Brother Vayle has spoke a many time ahead of me in the meetings, and--and so forth. He had managed the meetings for a long time, and a fine brother, done a swell job.”  (Humble.thyself 14/7/63).

 

“Brother Lee and I did everything we could, and give the ministerial association a breakfast free, just to come down and speak to them. Brother Lee Vayle, of course, is a scholar and a Doctor of Divinity. He really earned his degree.”( Look.away.to.Jesus 29/12/63).

 

On the Church Ages, page 139 onward, the doctrine says that the New Birth and the Baptism of the Holy Ghost are one and the same. That is contrary to the Word of God. It is not the same thing, and I’ll quote the scripture. How many believe that Jesus was first born right? [Congregation says, “Amen”].  Thirty years after that, He got the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. How many believe the apostles were born again before? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. “ Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:24). That same group had to go up to Pentecost for the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. That is contrary doctrine, and that is Baptist doctrine, that when you believe you get the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. That is contrary to the Word of God. I still believe that the Church Ages is inspired, but that does not disannul the fact that there are one or two seeds, and deadly seeds, that got away in the Church Ages.

 

All right, let us examine this by the Word of God. Brother Branham has already spoken about half a dozen times that the ministry of the seventh angel was to open the six seal mystery. Everybody agree with that? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. All right, this is in 1960 out here that this was recorded. That is long before the seals were opened up.

SEVEN THUNDERS NOT IN SEALS BOOK

 

This quotation is saying that the revelation contained in the seven seals is the seven thunders. We proved that wrong on our first message, because you cannot find the thunders in the seven seals book. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. The first seal is “the white horse,” and that’s “the devil.” Second seal, how many say, “devil? [Congregation says, “Devil”]. Third seal, “devil,” fourth seal, “devil.” Fifth seal, “Jew’s salvation,” sixth seal is “judgment,” seventh seal, “ not opened.” [Congregation says, “Amen”].  I am asking these interpreters, “Where are the thunders contained in the seven seals?” You cannot show me.

 

It went on to say that these seven thunders is what literally turn the heart of the children to their fathers. “This in the seals book here: Four horse riders, salvation of the Jews, and judgment preaching is the thing to turn us back to Pentecost.” Glory to God! Brother they are saying that this seal book has something to turn us back to Pentecost?

 

First of all, I want to ask, “What does it mean to turn the heart of the children back to the fathers?” To turn the heart of the children back to the fathers is for the church to go back to Pentecost, with the same kind of doctrine; same kind of miracles; same kind of signs, and with the same kind of power that they received on the day of Pentecost. Oh glory! I am coming with something. Glory to God!

 

How many knows what it is that turned the hearts of the fathers to the children? There was something that turned the hearts of the fathers to the children, and that was the event of the coming of the Lord. Yes sir! This here is a lie that was injected! It cannot hold up in the Word, and it cannot hold up in Brother Branham’s message. And let it be known where ever this tape may go, where ever this book may go, let it be known that I am no eighth messenger, and I have never claimed to be a prophet, and I am not that one. I am talking about Christ. I never, ever think that I am a prophet. No sir. And I am no eighth messenger. Yes sir! But I have the Word of the Lord, and I know what I am talking about.

 

Nothing in this seven seals Book could turn the hearts of the fathers to the children. No sir. Don’t get me wrong, the seals were opened to do two things: to reveal the man of sin and the son of man. Yes sir! But it is not recorded in the seven seals book. No, my brother! The son of man was hiding under the seventh seal, and the event was hiding under the seventh seal in an unknown language. Yes sir! But the opening of the seals brought these two things in full view – man of sin, and son of man in a mystery. The only way the followers of the message will understand that mystery of the son of man is to humble themselves, but they have blown their heads up with thunders, and thunders, and thunders; and like the prophet of God said, they have a lot of lightning but no thunder.

 

Let the musicians come forward and let me make my closing remarks, which I know that a lot of people would be reading this, and I am ready to take up the challenge of everything that I have spoken. Yes! This interpretation that they made on the seventh seal and seven thunders have put the bulk of the followers of this message in the strongest delusion that any people have ever fallen into. The strongest delusion! And that one death seed from America that says, that it is mysteriously revealed, and it is scattered throughout the message, have plunged people into a mental delusion and that mental delusion have caused these people to think that all the promises that were made by the Lord through Brother Branham, and all those things that are to be fulfilled, they are being fulfilled in a spiritual sense. And when they read the books and listen to the tapes, they are in such mental delusion and they live in such an imaginary dimension, that they think they caught the revelation, and every man is a beau rat in his own hole, every man thinks, that he is more spiritual than the next, and every man thinks that he is getting thunders and revelation. If only you could get what I am talking about.

While they make this big boast, and they are full of pride, they are not looking at

the facts that surround them. That doctrine of the seventh seal/seven thunders has destroyed the holiness message. We have more adulteries today, fornication, more immoral dressing, women in sacks, women in slits. They aren’t going to sing here again friend. See-through clothing, bobbing their hair, ruling their husbands, preacher’s wife ruling the church. You call that the thunders? Minister’s wife rebuking deacons. Ministers who say they are preaching the thunders, have unsaved children living under their roof, doing what they want. Is that the thunders? What the so-called thunders have done is that it destroyed the holiness message. High heel shoes, all the latest styles of New York. Is that the thunders? Absolutely not!

 

When we were preaching a thunderless message we had more holiness, more sincerity, more righteousness. And the reason that this church, together with a few churches around the world, still maintain the original standard, still maintain holiness, is even because we stayed with what Brother Branham said. And the reason that you feel the presence of God here, and the power of the Spirit more than any other assembly is because Michael is on our side. The one that I am talking about visits this tabernacle, and He does not come alone, but He came down with a host of other angels, because the third pull is a ministry of angels. They have come to minister to the elect, according to Hebrews 1.

 

Oh brother, if you know the sad condition, I hope I’m coming over, beloved, if you know the sad condition the followers of Malachi 4 are in because of that one death seed from America. It plunged them into an imaginary world, a delusion, mental delusion, where everybody thinks that God is speaking to them and revealing thunders. They have so much thunders that they pretend to get the Holy Ghost and fall down, raise their clothes up, you have to cover them with sheets. That is what the so-called thunders produced.

 

You say “Brother Bruce, how did that happened? That’s a terrible thing that God never knew that will happen?” Nothing takes God by chance. Didn’t Brother Branham see a vision of “The House of Hell?” Weren’t there people inside of there together with Brother Borders, insane, in a mental delusion, butting their heads against ten inches thick iron bars? And weren’t they crying for deliverance, and said, “Deliver us, deliver us.” And when Brother Branham looked in there, didn’t he see a rainbow covenant Angel? Didn’t he see a light flashing like a rainbow? Didn’t he call Him Christ? Immediately when he saw Christ, something told him, “Deliver those people,” and he spoke the Word. It wasn’t any sign in the hand, he said, “My arms are too small!” It was not going by the first and second pull. No! No! He spoke the Word. He said, “House of hell give away to the Name of Jesus Christ!” And the iron bars broke, and Brother Branham start crying out, “Brother Borders, where are you? God is delivering His people.”

And we have hope, brothers and sisters. As much as the devil has corrupted the followers of Malachi 4, God’s children are in every assembly. God’s servants are in every part of the world, but they are bound by the false anointed ones that have misinterpreted the message, and they put all these people into a mental delusion. They put all these people banging their heads. What are those bars Brother Bruce? Interpretations, ten inches thick bars of interpretations that have them caged up, and they’re butting their heads (their mental power) against those interpretations. But there will come a ministry of deliverance.

SEVENTH SEAL/SEVEN THUNDERS – GOD’S PROGRAM DELIVERS

 

Now after all of this has happened by the false anointed ones, what takes place is that the real program of the seven thunders, the real program of the seventh seal…Brother Branham said there is a real program. They have messed the real program of God up, from New York and around the world, but there is a real program. Now when that real program comes, it will bring forth the seventh seal in its power, seven thunders in its power, Judgments of God will fall. And what will happen, when that ministry comes to the public, it is going to come as a nightmare. When everybody thinks that all is over, a church is going to return to Pentecost (because the thunders is in the Capstone), and then they are going to be loosed like wild men. Don’t let this sound funny friend, God is going to loose some New Testament Apostles, and we might have them seated right here today. New Testament apostles, prophets, teachers and evangelists. Notice in your Bible, it took the Apostles to straighten the church whenever they strayed in the New Testament. And the only thing that will straighten this business here is some New Testaments apostles receiving the fullness of God like they had it on the day of Pentecost. I am prophesying. And when they are loosed upon this thing, they are going forth in judgment, because the seven thunders is a judgment ministry, the Lion of Judah (Revelation 10:1, notice He cried like a lion), and then he goes out. The ministry is going to be about six months – three to six months Brother Branham said, and when He goes out there, these prison bars will be broken down. These false anointed ones will be exposed. Christ, who is going to be the head of this ministry, will meet these false anointed ones and He will say, “Get off this trail! You are not ordained to ride this trail! You are a false anointed one.”

 

That white horse represents the apostolic church in power, and it is going to go forth in power and bring out all our brothers and sisters, from India, and from Africa, and from the Exodus, and from all the assemblies in this country. They only need one apostle to run through that troop and proclaim the Word of God. And when that minister thinks that he’s so great, and so powerful, he drops dead in front of his own congregation, and then the people will believe, just like Elijah killed those four hundred prophets. That’s the kind of a ministry coming on the earth. Not this foolishness that they are talking about, thunders and thunders, and thunders. Where are the judgments? Where is the New Name? Where is the power of God? I call it foolishness! Yes sir! This is the kind of ministry that is going out. When this goes out, it’s a bunch of New Testament apostles, and they would be proclaiming the seven thunders. They will have the New Name. By that New Name they will work their signs and their wonders. It’s then the New Name comes down into the Bride. By the power of the New Name they work their signs and wonders. By the power of the New Name they are translated. That is where it is. Not “Word of God!” Not “Jesus!” New Name! And these New Testament apostles go out there, and the kind of miracles that they will be doing is the Spoken Word miracles of the third pull, because the seven thunders and the third pull is one and the same, and the third pull carries a manifestation, and Brother Branham manifested them five times to show the Bride what that is. So we cannot be fooled. That’s the ministry that is coming on earth. Not I as a prophet, now have the message, and everybody have to hear me. This isn’t going to be the ministry of a man. It is a bunch of apostles.

 

Hear me, John came? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. Jesus followed? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. Was He the covenant Angel? I say was He the Covenant Angel? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. After that covenant Angel came down, were there apostles on the earth to take care of the church? [Congregation says, “Amen”]. That is God’s plan. Anything outside of that is the devil. Right now the whole thing is in disarray. But there is a crop growing in the back part of the desert, and when that Goliath starts roaring, David is going to come forth. He will look very insignificant, yes, he is the church, he is the Bride, but he will take up the challenge of the World Council of Churches. There we are friend. Do you believe this? [Congregation says, “Amen”].

 

I drilled you out tonight, but that’s the truth, and I have delivered my soul, and this is going around the world. Yes sir! It is going to give God’s people a hope. It is going to give them an understanding. I am expecting fruits from this, that the people could get a vision of the next thing to happen on earth. The next thing to happen on earth is the seven thunders revival and the seven thunders ministry. It is going out. It is going to happen just about the time of the coming of the Lord, Brother Branham said,” and he said, “the seven thunders will gather the Bride.”

 

So now the Bride is in every assembly, and God’s elect being in these assemblies, the thunders goes out with the correct revelation and correct power and the right Name; and by that power it’s going to draw the elect out of every assembly, and then the Bride is going to be one, and she’ll be translated by the seven thunders power. The power of the seven thunders will be the New Name and the fullness of God that they received on the day of Pentecost. It is going to be translating power. Give us a song there brother. Let us all stand.

SEVENTH SEAL/SEVEN THUNDERS PERVERSIONS

 

FORGIVENESS AND WARNING TO PROPHET

 

“Amen” means so let it be, and our Lord is the amen. So we are thankful tonight for our gathering again. And we heard the brother’s confession and we are always happy to see somebody come to genuine repentance. And whatever he might have said or done in whatever way towards me as a little servant, I forgive you brother. And I am interested in one thing and that is the deliverance of every soul, from the house of Hell. So nothing you could have said would affect me in such a way to hate you, or have malice, or grievances in any way but the Lord has given me that grace, and I thank him for that, so I forgive you for whatever you might have said. And you was dismissed on account of a prophetic ministry which you claimed and after several warnings and councils you was determine to follow in that path, and I don’t believe that any pastor could pastor a prophet.

 

So these spirits of insanity they are loosed upon the earth since the opening of the seals, and they are willing to possess any ambitious person, any person with a desire for popularity, want to be known and would have that up in their head and we have many experiences here at this church with many prophets arising and it will take a good few hours to tell you and maybe a few days to go into details concerning prophets, not only prophets, but Christs, son of man, Michael the arch angel and all these powerful ministries by men that came in with the wrong motives and objectives, and you could  make yourself  a false prophet overnight especially when you start following this message, and you see all that knowledge and understanding, and when you come to this tabernacle and hear those things so placed together and you get into the heights of the revelation, if your motives and objectives are wrong then you could encourage the wrong spirit upon you. So we came through all of that and if we are to count them there might have about 20-25 false prophets that passed through here and other assemblies which we are associated with, and they ended up very horribly and the bad thing brothers and sisters I don’t know but about one, out of all those prophets who arose that ever was delivered, they came and confessed and repented, I am not saying that this brother cannot be delivered, but what I am saying it is a terrible spirit to fight against and you got to humble your heart, “except a man humble himself as a little child he shall not enter the kingdom of God. He that exalted himself shall be abased, but he that humbleth himself shall be exalted”.

 

Whatever you have said that is neither here nor there to me nor this congregation although some reconciliation may have to be made towards those that prompted you, you may have to write a letter and declare your stand and let them know that they are all liars and deceivers [congregation says amen] so they themselves might be delivered. So I would ask the deacons to see that it is done and we will have a copy of that letter. But the big problem with this brother is not so much what he said, or what he done, or the cocaine that he went back on, or the miserable life he led as a message believer for many years, the big problem is, that ministry that he claim and that prophetic office.

 

Now that’s the thing that is very hard to go, that’s a terrible thing and unless a man conception in itself changes and he humble his heart, that spirit do not leave a man. So my, advise to you or any false prophet around this country, or around the world, that would hear this, my admonishment is to humble your heart as a little child. We are nothing in the sight of God; the sons of God are not yet placed. Sons of God are yet to be placed, and any man that claim an office in this hour by his own ideas, self-will and mental conception will make himself a false prophet and it shows that he don’t understand the message, the next thing on God’s agenda is, the sons of God must be placed and we see that pattern just before Pentecost and they were arguing amongst themselves who shall be the greatest in the kingdom of God, and Jesus said he that desirous to be the greatest shall be the lowest. That is where we are at, right now in the ministry of Christ. We must come to this certain place where we consider ourselves as nothing.

 

I told you many times I am only a preacher of righteousness and I try to preach to you with all humility, trying to walk softly and shone those spirits that came by the opening of the seals. When the seals was opened these spirits of insanity came upon the earth and they were locked up in the Euphrates River by the millions, and they were loosed here upon the earth to demon possess people. It’s a very serious affair and that it is why when a prophet arises in this congregation He must prove himself; I give every prophet that arises a chance to prove that he is a scriptural prophet. I just don’t dump him out because a man say he is a prophet, I let him prove his case, maybe he is a prophet, so I give him a chance to disclose his message, disclose his calling, and sometimes I offer them the pulpit, and we all sit and judge this gift that this man has. And we compare it with the word, and if it not of God we ask him to repent, and if he does not repent, then I as a little pastor cannot pastor a prophet. So he must go and find his own office and operate in that office.

 

However I want to say that I received many wonderful and humble messages from this brother and he said that he would do anything to sit under this ministry once more. I feel good about that brother I want to tell you that I don’t have the slightest bitterness in my heart towards any human being in this building nor under the sound of my voice, and much-less for you, regardless of what you have done. Whenever we get bitterness in our hearts, Christ is going to leave us. Regardless of what happen, bitterness for your brother or for your sister, for your enemies no! You should not have any bitterness whatsoever I have no bitterness whatsoever in my heart towards any human being. God has done a work of Grace. And I know it is the work of Grace because I was not like that, yes!

 

Many years ago I would have gotten equal with you, and if I had to kill you I would have killed you. That’s the mentality without the Holy Spirit. That was my mentality, as big as you are I would get you. Yes! But God has changed something down in me, and I know that change. And that did not come now, it came many years ago, and brothers and sisters, everybody that would go in the rapture must come to that place where you don’t hold malice, bitterness, and hatred, towards one another. You must come to that place. We are working towards that. So there are many eighth messengers that have arisen around the world and that was prophesied to come here after the opening of the seals. Today we have all kinds of false christs and false prophets around the world. And the prophet of God termed them “false anointed ones in the end-time”, and right now the whole world is filled with all kinds of false anointed ones.

 

A man will be an utter fool to rise up and claim to be a prophet in this hour, without being sanctioned by God, without being called or appointed of the Lord, therefore we are nothing. So we thank God for the repentance of this brother and we want to try to help him in everyway to get that spirit off of him. I trust that he has dismissed that spirit already. He was placed on a visitor’s status to prove himself free from the spirit of antichrist, before he can become a part of the house of God. (Nothing was spoken about he denouncing his office). So tonight I have a little message to continue on the seventh seal/seven thunders, [congregation says “Amen”] and this message is entitled “Seventh seal/seven thunders perversions - House of Hell".

 

“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 he 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).

“Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, dispisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3: 3-5).

 

Verse one verifies how good is this scripture for the last days. All these scriptures have to do with Paul’s day, and it has to do with the day in which we are living in. This is the last days; 2000 years are the last days. One day is a thousand year with the Lord and we are in the last two days. So we are in the last days. May the Lord add a blessing to his Holy Words.

I am back on this subject here tonight even because it is very vital and I believe that many souls, around the world could be delivered, from the things you are about to hear alive tonight. So I will speak on the seventh “seal/seven thunders perversions second school of thought house of Hell”. And a little background, Malachi 4 was sent today, and the greatest part of the ministry of Malachi 4 was the opening of the seals. So our brother Branham in 1963 the lamb opened the seals and he gave him six seals, and when he cam to the seventh seal brother Branham said that the revelation of the seventh seal is hiding under the seven thunders, and it was in an unknown language that I could not read, and make out. So 1963 that was, and then up to 1965 the prophet of God continued to teach that the seventh seal is not revealed. Now for your understanding, when I say seventh seal/ seven thunders, is because the revelation of the seventh seal and the seven thunders is one and the same.

 

This the prophet had never known until the Lord told him that the revelation of the seventh seal in Revelation 8:1 is hiding under these seven thunders. And the thunders were not revealed to brother Branham. So there arose at that time after awhile, there arose two schools of thoughts, on this subject amongst the followers of Malachi 4 if the seventh seal was opened or not, and everybody went along saying that the seventh seal /seven thunders was not revealed by brother Branham. And I am a witness, and we have many witnesses here today that could reflect back to those days and from that time from 1963 to 1973 nobody claimed that the seventh seals or seven thunders was revealed. So in 1973 there arose preachers and particularly one man in New York, I call his name with all respect, Pastor Joseph Coleman, he propagated that the seven thunders was revealed in a mysterious way and it is hiding in the message and he found it. So, there are two schools of thoughts since that time, concerning the seventh seal/seven thunder the two schools of thoughts are very simple. One group says that it was not revealed, and another group say, that it was revealed, in 1973 they said they found it.

 

Now that school of thought that opened up in 1963 was the school that brother Branham and the Lamb of God established, they were the principals of it. Brother Branham supported that until 1965 at his departure. I want to announce here that, I with the ministers and this congregation are identified in the first school. (Congregation says amen). Now I want to hear your voices, (Congregation says amen). So we are identified with the first school of thought. The doctrines, of the first school of thought were established on the seventh seal and other tapes. So the seventh seal/ seven thunders we believe as students of the first school thought that the seventh seal/ seven thunders was not opened in 1963. It holds the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is a total secret.

 

In revelation 8:1 there was silence in heaven, and it concerns the second coming of Jesus. The seven thunders were not written in revelation the 10th chapter; therefore it was silence there. Jesus never told them, how he will come, when he will come, in Matt. 24 therefore there are three silences in the bible, and those three silences in the bible represents the revelation of the second coming of Jesus Christ. Any man that claim to know to the seventh seal and seven thunders he must be able to tell you about the coming of the Lord. Not even the angels knew, not even Jesus as a man knew, but only the heavenly father had known.

 

The doctrines of the first school is established and, God has a specific hour, he has a specific day, he has a specific time for the revelation of the seventh seal/seven thunders to be broken to the public. And God has a program for this, and the prophet of God Brother Branham warned every man that heard the preaching of the seventh seal, and would hear the tapes later on, he say do not interpret the seventh seal, because it is not revealed, he say you’ll be lost. But he said it in these words “you will wind yourself of the beaten tract”. If you are disobedient and you think that you want to reveal the seventh seal and reveal the seven thunders he say you’ll be lost. You got to wait upon God’s program and he said, “when you try to interpret it then you would mess the program of God up”. That’s his word, that’s his teaching and this is fully established in our first message called facts of the seventh seal. Then we came with a second message “seventh seal misinterpreted” that means that they were disobedient and they did not take the warning of the prophet as much as he warned them not to interpret the seventh seal. They went about and think that they were brighter than him and they interpreted the seventh seal and now they are off the beaten tract.

 

I want to call to your attention to something tonight that will expose further the second school of thought. I would say that the majority of the message followers belong to the second school of thought, and it is only a handful that belongs to brother Branham’s school of thought. I would not doubt that it is 90 or 95% when giving reconsideration from 70% I would not doubt that there is 90-95% of message followers that belongs to that school. Yes! And I am here again to expose that school in a way that a fool shall not ear therein. And I am going to quote to you, not in an elaborate way but I am going to hit the highlights and these quotations that I am going to give here it is going to bring out to you what the seven thunders suppose to produce. And I want to compare what the seven thunders suppose to produce with the second school of thought and what they produced. And I want you to be the judges and those that will hear this tape around the world to be the judges, and those that will read the book to be the judges, of this matter. The seven thunders suppose to produce certain things. Those that claim the thunders they either produce that or they did not produce that. If they did not produce that then they made a false claim and they are in a delusion of the devil.

THE CHURCH WILL BE CAPPED BY THE THUNDERS, IS THIS THE MYSTERY TO BRING BACK THE HEADSTONE?

THE HEADSTONE IS YET TO COME

 

47-1 “It might be closer than you think it is. It's got me scared. Oh, I haven't done enough. Where are we at? Time shall be no more. He announces that time is over. What happens? Could that be so now, brethren? Seriously think. If it is, then the pyramid is capped by the seven thunders. You remember the pyramid message? It's the capstone. What did it do? The Holy Spirit capped off the individual and sealed it when we added to our faith, righteousness, and godliness, and faith, and so forth. We kept adding to it till we got seven things, and the seventh one was Love which is God. That's how He makes the individual. He caps him and seals him with the Holy Spirit. Then if that be so, He's got seven church ages that He's had seven mysteries that's been sounded away and they fought for to bring back, and now the Headstone comes to cap off the church. Does the thunders mean that, my brethren? Sirs, is that where we are at?

  48-5    Look, then look, the Capstone was not interpreted. See? "Get west and come back." Or is it this? Is these seven angels in this constellation that came to me... When I meet you at the day of the resurrection, you'll see that I lie not: God my Judge. Or is this that second climax that I talked about the other day. Is there something coming forth for the church? I don't know. I could stay on that a little bit, but I'll move on. Could it be that? The mighty thunder, or the seventh angel in the seven constellation, seventh period constellation, the pyramid made in a form, three on a side, and one on top, and they dropped from eternity. Could it be? Is this the mystery of the thunders that will bring back the Headstone?

48-8 And you know, the pyramid never was capped. The Headstone's yet to come. It's been rejected. Could it be, brethren, sisters.” (Sirs is this the time 30/12/62).

He's got death wrote on him; Christ's got Life wrote on Him. Those with Him are on white horses also, and they are called "the chosen before the foundation of the world," (Amen.) and they are faithful to the Word. Amen. Whew. I like that one. Called, chosen before the foundation of the world, and then faithful to the Word by their choosing, all stimulated with new wine and oil just riding right along, coming down to meet Him. They know the thunders will issue the thing 'course pretty soon. See?” (Fourth seal 21/3/63).

Oh, brother, you better get to Goshen while there's time to get to Goshen. Don't pay any attention to this outside.” (And Knoweth it not 15/8/65).

And last week's tapes, I think, will reveal to you the great hideous things that we're going to speak on one of these days when we can get a place sufficient, of the opening of those last plagues to be poured out upon the earth--those Vials, rather, pouring out of the Vials, and the Seven Thunders... And those hideous sights that's coming upon the earth.” (Christ is revealed in His own Word 22/8/65).

See how those things will be dropped in and those thunders, then you'll find out what that man and them people has been dreaming about and all these things there; it'll come to pass.” (Christ is revealed in His own Word 22/8/65).

REVEALS TO THE CHURCH HOW TO GO

 

53-2 ‘If Jesus is coming, it's a very--it's a moment that the whole world has groaned and cried for. If it's something breaking forth now, for a--a new coming--a new coming of a new gift or something, it'll be wonderful. If it's coming time that the revelation of the seven thunders will be revealed to the church, how to go, I don't know. I have just stated what I saw.” (Sirs is this the time 31/12/62).

 

GETS THE BRIDE TOGETHER FOR RAPTURING FAITH

 

128-2 {75} “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.” (First seal 18/3/63).

^Top^

 

IT'LL GIVE FAITH FOR THAT RAPTURING GRACE
FOR THAT CHURCH TO MOVE OUT

 

142-1 {166} “But think, now he wrote this, but when he started to write those other seven thunders, he said, "Don't write it." He'd been commissioned to write everything he seen. But when these seven thunders over in Revelations 10 uttered, he said, "Don't write them at all." They're mysteries. We don't know what they are yet; but my opinion they'll be revealed right away. And when it do, it'll give faith for that rapturing grace for that Church to move out. We just move through everything that we know of; through all the dispensations we've watched everything. We've seen the mysteries of God. We've seen the appearing of the great gathering together of the Bride in the last days, but yet there's something in there that we just can't lighten ourself with. There's something another. But I imagine when them mysteries begins to come forth... God said, "Hold it back now. Wait a minute. I'll reveal it in that day. Don't write it at all, John, 'cause they'll stagger over it. Just let it go. (See?) But I'll reveal it in that day when it has need to done.” (First seal 18/3/63).

 

225-6  {350} “God, help our unbelief. Take it away from us, Lord. We want to receive rapturing grace. We want to be able when that mysterious thunder thunders out yonder, and the Church is taken up, we want to be ready to receive it, Lord.” (Second seal 19/3/63).

SOMETHING TO LET US KNOW HOW TO ENTER INTO RAPTURING FAITH - OUR VILE BODIES ARE GOING TO BE CHANGED.

 

46-1 “And when the mystery's finished, the Angel said, "Time shall be no more," and seven thunders throwed their voices out. What if it is something to let us know how to enter in to the rapturing faith. Is it? Will we run and leap over walls? Is there something fixing to happen, and these old marred, vile bodies are going to be changed? Can I live to see it, O Lord? Is it so close that I'll see it? Is this the generation? Sirs, my brethren, what time is it? Where are we at?"(Sirs is this the time 30/12/62).

 

UTTER OUT SOMETHING THAT THE LITTLE GROUP

WILL RECEIVE A RAPTURING FAITH TO GO IN THE RAPTURE

 

51-5 “Is that really them seven thunders fixing to utter out something that the little group that He's gathered together will receive a rapturing faith to go in the rapture when He comes; for we'll be changed as quick as those Angels come: in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, and shall be caught up together with those that is asleep to meet the Lord in the air.” (Sirs is this the time 30/12/62).

HOLDS THE SECOND COMING OF THE LORD

HE HASN’T REVEALED YET

 

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. 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 28/7/63).

 

Anybody that claims seven thunders must fulfil all these promises that the seven thunders must fulfil, otherwise they are falsely led.

 

The second school of thought was opened up by Pastor Coleman in 1973, and he claimed that the seven thunders was revealed by the prophet mysteriously, and it was hidden in the message, and he found it by climbing up into the heavenly dimension. So he was gifted to climb up into the heavenly dimension after nine, ten or eleven years, and find where the prophet had the seven thunders hiding in the message. I am saying, that foundation of the second school is a lie of the devil; and the second school is built upon the foundation that Brother Branham opened the seventh seal mysteriously, and he was hiding the revelation in the message, and the minister and the congregation must climb up into a certain dimension and then find that revelation and bring it down to the people that don’t have that revelation. I am saying, that’s a lie of Satan.

 

Nowhere in the facts of the seventh seal where we read was that stated. You sat here and you heard “Facts of the seventh seal”. Did Brother Branham say anywhere on that, that the thunders were revealed mysteriously? [Congregation says, “No”.] It’s a lie of the devil then? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] We quoted forty facts of the seventh seal, and more than that, and Brother Branham never even indicated one word that he hid the thunders mysteriously. I refute such statement of Brother Branham hiding anything mysteriously, because Brother Branham was not sent on the earth to preach mysteries to us, but was sent to us to reveal the mysteries of God. He was sent to reveal the mysteries, not make the Bible mysterious, but to make it understandable. To be revealed means to make known, and when he came to that seventh seal, he said it was still a mystery, and it is the mystery of the second coming of Jesus Christ, which he could not interpret, but not one place did he ever say that it was revealed mysteriously. In one place he said that he preached the seven trumpets supernaturally. Supernaturally and mysteriously are two different things all entirely. They are typing how Brother Branham preached the trumpets under the sixth seal, and I want to call to your attention, that although Brother Branham preached the trumpets supernaturally, and it was under the sixth seal, he knew that it needed prophetic ability to bring that revelation out again to the people, so he was planning to preach the seven trumpets again. Then he realized that it was not his ministry, it was the ministry of another prophet called Elijah, and another one called Moses, to Israel.

 

So after ten years of silence, from New York the silence was broken, so they claim, and some even made an interpretation that the ten years where the thunders and the seventh seal were not preached, it was the silence of the seventh seal, so it was a type. Another made a type that Brother Branham took so long to start preaching about the seventh seal when he came to it, for one hour and an half he did not say anything pertinent to the seventh seal, therefore that was the silence, the hour and an half. You are a liar my friend, the Bible never spoke of an hour and an half silence; it spoke of a half an hour silence. Not an hour and an half, but half an hour silence.

 

So the second school of thought, in 1973, when they opened up, they claimed that they broke the silence; and that school of thought went internationally, and today we have thousands of different interpretations, cults and isms, and eighth messengers, and interpreters, and thousands of different versions of the thunders that came out of the second school of thought. That is where the majority of people stands in this message, almost everybody that preaches thunders, and my good friends are included, from around the world, and from Trinidad here, that never preached thunders for years; my good friends started to preach thunders ten years, fifteen years, twenty years, twenty five years after the opening of the seals. My question to them is, “Where did you get your thunders from?”

 

These messages are to show you that your thunders, don’t matter how much you want to deny New York, and deny the gentleman called Mr. Coleman, your thunders came from New York, and that’s the root of it, and the root of those thunders is where they said that the thunders was mysteriously revealed by Brother Branham. Of course you have others that say that they are the prophet, like Mr. William Soto Santiago, right down here in our backyard in Latin America, who claims to be the son of man revealed, and claims to be an eighth messenger. And we have another fellow out here in Singapore, Mr. Gan, he claims to be a special apostle after Brother Branham, and he claims that seven men will get the seven thunders. Mr. Gan you are telling a lie, and I already wrote about you, and you are defeated, with all your arguments by your letters, you were put down by the Word of God. Yes!

 

So the foundation of the second school is upon the words “Mysteriously revealed”, those two words, seven thunders, “mysteriously revealed”. Yes! Now this second school of thought, knowing that the thunders must produce all these things that the prophet of God spoke, they had fire in their hands. When a man claim to have the seven thunders, he has to go back to all these promises that I just read, and he must bring it to the people to show that it is being fulfilled. Do you understand the problem that they have on hand? Now they found a way out. The way out that the thunder preachers found over the years from 1973, and up to today, they are still making interpretations to show the fulfilment of those things that I just coined to you, that the seven thunders must produce. We believe that the seven thunders must produce that. It must produce it.

 

So what they did is that the second school of thought took those promises that I just read to you, and spiritualized them, saying that they are fulfilled in a spiritual way, in a spiritual dimension. They explain the promise of God away. Anything that explains the promise of God away, Brother Branham said it is antichrist, and there was to arise a certain class of people in 2 Timothy the third chapter that would deny the power of God in the last days, and they were called Jannes and Jambres, and that’s the false anointed ones today. So when they spiritualized all these great promises of God that were to be fulfilled in the last days, that plunged ministers and believers, and good people into an imaginary, satanic delusion built upon a mental understanding, intellectual understanding, and carnal interpretations.

 

Let us stop for a minute children. Can you evaluate what a great responsibility that these people had upon their hands when they claimed that they got the revelation of the seven thunders? When they claim that they got the revelation of the seven thunders, their minds will quickly reflect back to all what the thunders suppose to produce, because it was spoken by a major prophet, Malachi 4, William Branham, by the Holy Ghost. Their minds must quickly go to work. They must find ways and means to show where these promises are fulfilled. They had to show the New Name. They have to show translation power. They had to show the Bride’s revival. Do you understand what I am getting at? Now the minds of these preachers quickly went to work, throughout the world now, the second school of thought became international in a few years, and it plunged all these ministers to figure out how God is fulfilling all these promises, and since they were built upon the thought “Mysteriously revealed”, they also applied that same term “Mysteriously revealed” to the New Name, to the translation power, to all these promises now, they apply that same thought, the same idea, and they spiritualized this whole thing – all the promises of God.

 

Now I am here, brothers and sisters, and though you’ve heard these things before, this that they did fulfilled a dream that Brother Branham had in 1965, twenty-eight days before he died, God gave him a dream, showing him that this condition will arise amongst the message followers, and this dream is called “House of Hell”, and it is on “Works is faith expressed”, and this brought to pass when the second school was inaugurated, and it became international, I believe as a servant of God that that brought to pass this dream that Brother Branham had concerning good people in the House of Hell, and those are not only words, I will prove it to you right here.

 

Although these people went contrary to the message, I want you to know that they are our brothers and sisters. We love them, and according to the dream they are good people, but he said that these good people misunderstood him. So now these good people are in prison behind ten inches thick bars of iron.  That is where he saw these good people, behind ten inches thick bars of iron. Beloved that iron post you see in front there is only about three and an half inches thick. You have to multiply that about three times, and it was not one bar, they were sitting close together and the people were behind those bars. If I get to the dream I will tell you more about it, let me go on.

 

Now these are good people. Now if these are good people, and these people went behind prison bars that are called the House of Hell, I am here to tell you that the ones that imprisoned these people behind these ten inches thick bars, they are the false anointed ones. Oh children let me stop for a moment. About the time of the opening of the seals was the time that the false anointed ones were loosed. The seals were opened to deliver the Bride of Christ. 

 

About that same time these spirits of insanity and spirits of prophet, and spirits of christs were loosed around that time, and if you notice these false anointed ones never tried to pervert water baptism nor the godhead, nor anything again. They came by and perverted the seventh seal. They attacked the seventh seal, because they were loosed around the time of the seven seals. Why would the false anointed ones attack the seventh seal? Why would the false anointed ones attack the seven thunders? Common sense. My brother, the seven thunders is the only thing to tell the Bride how to go in the rapture, how to be translated, how to escape the enemy, and the devil knows that under those thunders is the secret of how to be translated and go in the rapture. If the false anointed ones could carry a false message to people around the world, then he could stop them from going in the rapture. Let that soak in children.

 

Why did the false anointed ones attack the seventh seal / seven thunders? They attacked the seventh seal / seven thunders to carry a false revelation internationally, that when people believe that false revelation they cannot go in the rapture, but they will go through the tribulation, because the seventh seal on the Book, which is the seven thunders, is the only revelation to translate the Bride. So the devil got the people in a hurry and made them run out before time without God’s program, to carry a lie around the world. The second school of thought, I openly declare, and I make no apology, and I want the world to hear me if they can, the second school of thought bring into view the House of Hell. The false anointed ones, their first attack was to attack the seventh seal and the seven thunders in order to keep the elected Bride earthbound. But we are not going to stay earthbound, because God has a real program. He has real thunders. He has a real time for it, and it is predestinated to translate the Bride in the end time.

 

You talk about a shot that the devil tried at the end time Bride of Christ. It was the biggest shot. He never perverted water baptism. He never perverted all those ordinary doctrines, but the false anointed ones were loosed after the seals. Therefore being loosed after the seals, he knows the value of the seventh seal, he knows the value of the seven thunders, he knows that the entire Bride’s salvation and the rapture, the resurrection and everything, were resting on the seven thunders, therefore he shoot his false anointed ones with a false doctrine. Those that preach seven thunders – seven virtues, seven thunders – Word of God, seven thunders this, that and the next, you are in a delusion of the devil, and you need to snap out of that. Yes! You need to put down those thunders and wait on the real program on God. Oh yes! That’s the mistake that Eve made in the Garden of Eden, she ran ahead of Adam and she went out there before time, and she got the wrong seed.

 

Our brothers and sisters are behind those prison bars tonight. I have brothers and sisters, and you have brothers and sisters in every assembly that follows this message. We love them in Africa, we love them in India, we love them in Trinidad, we love them in North and South America, but I tell you they are our brothers and they are good people and the false anointed ones put them behind those bars, and he put them behind those bars because they believe a false report on the seven thunders. Oh that is so sweet.

 

Beloved you aren’t going to hear that everywhere. The devil is trying to stop the rapture, stop the translation, stop the Bride from going home, stop the outpouring of the Holy Ghost from coming upon the Bride, and in order to do that, all the promises that belong to the Bride, if he could spiritualize these promises to her then she cannot go in the rapture. But the elect is ordained to hear it. The foolish virgins would be caught up and would not catch on, and she would go through the tribulation without oil. Oh my! Brother do you see that shot? Ministers do you see that shot? That’s a horrible thing that I’m talking about. I am talking about a big thing. I am talking just about common sense. I am talking about simplicity. I am talking about the plan of the devil. Anything that believes thunders today out there, from that second school, is deceived of the devil. I don’t care who they are. I don’t care how big their names are. I don’t care how much they followed Brother Branham; they are deceived of the devil, because your thunders are not producing what the thunders said it would produce.

 

Don’t you know that the thunders cannot be impersonated? I have something on that friend. Brothers and sisters, how do you evaluate that statement? Brother Bruce, you said the seven thunders cannot be impersonated and here we have all kind of impersonations of the seven thunders and all kind of impersonations of the teachings? That is only one part of it.  A man could bring up a false teaching on the thunders but he cannot impersonate the power that comes with the seven thunders, because it is spoken word power and only God could speak and bring into creation. Now you’ve got to get that line. They would bring up false teachings on the seven thunders but they cannot impersonate the power, and that will always expose them.

 

So now the second school of thought bring into being the House of Hell, and the false anointed put our brothers and sisters from the message, many of them, into the House of Hell behind ten inches thick bars. You’d better thank God for your escape my friend. Thank God for leaving those false thunders down there in Point Fortin. Thank God every day that you never came under one of these preachers. It is the grace of God. Thank God that you got away from the “Exodus” brother, from that false prophet up there, son of man and white eagle he is. Thank God every day. Thank God that you got away from these thunder preachers around the country. It is only the grace of God that caused you to belong to the first school.

 

I am saying that the second school is of the devil. I am saying that the second school of thought is antichrist. The second school of thought belongs to the false anointed ones. The second school of thought is Satan’s plan to stop the Bride from going in the rapture. The second school of thought is the House of Hell with ten inches thick bars that have our brothers and sisters in prison, but we have a promise of deliverance. Deliverance is coming to Africa, India, and China. Deliverance is coming to North and South America and to the Caribbean and the rest of the world. It is going to come there by God’s seven thunders, by God’s servants. By the power of the seven thunders. By the new Name of Christ.

 

Where the second school of thought is exposed is because they cannot impersonate the power that the seven thunders is supposed to produce, where by will a man could shut the heavens or open it. Where a human being could call for one hundred billion tons of flies and bring it overnight. Beloved that is where Jannes and Jambres failed. Under Moses, Jannes and Jambres were shown up and their folly were made manifest when they could not produce the speak the word power that Moses was producing by his ministry. They did all the other signs and wonders, but one day Moses picked up some sand and he threw it up in the air, and he said, “Let there be lice”, and the magicians tried to do it and they could not do it, therefore the folly of Jannes and Jambres were made known. I am saying that the folly of these false anointed ones and the folly of the second school will be made known by the real program of God and the real thunders that is going to hit the world, and it’s going to come into the public before the rapture takes place. Oh beloved my soul cries out from the innermost part of my being when I see the deception of the hour, but thankfulness arises on the next quarter of the soul when I see the narrow escape that we made. Thank God for a narrow escape.

 

This thing is terrible. These false anointed ones were loosed after these seals to come and pervert the seventh seal / seven thunders that was not yet revealed. That was the only weapon that they had to work with, to come and pervert that mystery because it was not revealed. So these false anointed ones started to pervert, to change, to spiritualize, to use their heads in explaining away the seven thunders and what it’s supposed to produce. So the first thing is that the seven thunders was suppose to produce a Bride’s revival. Did you hear me read that? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] So the first bar of interpretation that they made (this prison house took time to build you know, and it is the strongest now and it’s already made). The first ten inches thick bar that they made was when they explained away the Bride’s revival. The Bride has never had a revival yet, but she is going to have one by the seven thunders. And the interpretation that came up there is that God is not bringing a revival like what William Branham had and what Jesus had and what different men had, but this is a spiritual revival of the soul, that when you receive Coleman’s thunders and Arizona thunders, and Africa thunders and South America thunders, you enter the revival. “It is not a revival of power. No. It’s a revival of the soul. God is working on the soul”. You lying hypocrite! You big deceiver! The prophet of God said in the church ages that a revival signifies the Word of God in power. That’s the first bar of this prison, and that went around the world; and in the pomp of all this revival they brought African songs into it, and African music into it. Yes. I am looking at a fellow right here who used to sing the songs and who used to get in the power, and it very much resembles Shango power and Baptist power, and the drums of Africa upon which the rock and roll music is built, upon the drums of Africa that invoke demons, and the Shango drums here still invoke devils; and that is where the rock and roll music is based, upon the drums of Africa. And when you listen to rock and roll music you get demon possessed, and you start hating society and father and mother, and you start calling for blood.

^Top^

 

Don’t you know that the very word “Rock and roll” is sex suggestive? Study the name. You are big people. The name of that music “Rock and roll” is sex suggestive, and that name was given by the coloured people in America. And that devil-possessed man called Elvis Presley, he carried that wicked rock and roll music right back to Africa into the very Hottentots of Africa.

 

So they spiritualized that one. Everybody fell for that and everybody thought they were in a revival. Ten years after that, another revival broke, and it was called the “sealing revival” the last thing for the Bride to get before she goes away in the rapture. Do you see how they spiritualize that? Most of them that claimed that seal went back into the world, also preachers. Some lay-members died with aids, they fell in adultery, fornication and all manner of immorality. Others went on cocaine and marijuana. That “sealing revival” was a lie of the devil. Come on, you better sit down there even though it’s until mid-night; we are going on with the Word of God.

 

Next they explained that “the seven thunders capped the Bride”, and since they thought that the thunders capped the Bride, “the Headstone had come. Beloved the Headstone on the pyramid which is love, which is charity, which is the outpouring, which is the Holy Spirit, they term that to mean the dogma of their thunders, saying that the seven thunders would cap the Bride. Instead of saying, it is the outpouring and the power of God, they made it the dead letter of the Word, which they perverted.

 

So they spiritualized the revival, by their dogmas, and they spiritualized the Headstone, by their dogma, calling “the thunders” of the second school “the Headstone.” It is not the thunders; it is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. “The Capstone is not yet come”.

 

There was a big problem here and they did not know what to do about it. They waited for many years. The thunders are supposed to reveal the new Name. So, they built up a few more bars and one fellow got a revelation. He said, “The new Name is Jesus”, when in the very seals book, Brother Branham said that was not the new Name”. Jesus was the redemptive Name.

 

  158-3  {283} “And Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that's true. But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a new Name.” (Seals Book 18/3/63).

 

  159-4  {289} “…Christ is called the Word of God. That's what He is. He's called that. Now, He's got a Name that no man knows, but He's called the Word of God.(Seals Book 18/3/63).

 

 221-2  {321} “…his name is called... (not "is," but called)... The Word of God. For He and the Word is the same.” (Seals Book 19/3/63).

 

Another man arose and said “Jesus is not the new Name”. The new Name is “Word of God”. Don’t you see in Revelation 19 that He is called the Word of God? Brother Branham already explained that; He is called that, but he has a Name that no man knew. The only thing with these new names; “Jesus”, “Word of God”, is that they cannot call for a hundred billion tons of flies; and they cannot bring down the judgments of God. If you believe the new Name is Jesus or Word of God, you are in the “House of Hell” my friend and are speaking from that house, though you are elected, though you are a brother, though you will be delivered. You are talking from the “House of Hell”. The new Name is given for translation. The new Name is given for power to the Bride. We will do these signs and wonders by the spoken word. He will reveal that new Name. That’s the promise of the seven thunders.

 

You seven thunders preachers, you belong to the “second school”, you are found liars. With all your interpretations of “Jesus”, new Name etc., you are powerless. You can’t even move a dead ant out of the way. You can’t make a dead flee, and much less to bring a hundred billion tons of flies. You are exposed! You are a hypocrite! You are a liar to preach that! If you claim the new Name, it’s supposed to produce what the thunders should produce.

 

They had to bring up an interpretation because the seven thunders is supposed to gather the Bride. So, they had conventions; some brothers we know went down to them. They held ministers meetings, and in the meetings they debated about the thunders, and they are still debating up to today. It is supposed to gather the Bride. When the Bride is gathered they do not fight and carry on. The gathering of the Bride is in unity and love.

 

They were gathering now by a “love gospel”. The love gospel is to compromise on doctrines, compromise on ideas, compromise on how you see it, and let us all become one. The reason the love gospel came in there, was they had to show the world a unity, because the seven thunders had to bring the Bride together. All right! I want this message to go out loud and clear. It’s about time my friends.

 

The thunders held the coming of the Lord. You made it the seven virtues. Mr. Interpreter, you are lying. The prophet said the seven thunders is the coming of the Lord. You said it is the seven virtues. You are a liar. It is the coming of the Lord, and not even the prophet knew it. Who are you to claim to know it? You are a false anointed one! Servant of the devil; interpreter of the Word of God! Seven virtues are not what is under the seven thunders, it is the coming of the Lord. Not even the prophet knew it.

 

Another interpreter, after many years arose and he said, “ what was under the thunders was the full Word of God, and the full Word of God came into existence at the seals, and that was the seven thunders. The seven thunders is the full Word of God from the opening of the seals”. I have news for you. The full Word of God is Christ. How many believe that? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] And He was hiding under the thunders. Therefore, you could not find Him, because nobody knew when He came, and how He came. The Word is Christ, and if you said at the opening of the seals the full Word of God came, so be it; but He was hiding. One time Jesus was borned into the world and there were three wise men looking for Him and they could not find Him. They had to find a certain star, and when this time came about, brother, in this hour here when the Lord is about ready to preach the thunders to the public, you will have to find one of these stars. One of these “star-boy” preachers, you will have to find, otherwise you are going through the tribulation.

They had to find the solution for rapturing faith, because the thunders had to bring rapturing faith. Do you know the lie that they produced? They said when you hear the “thunders” and your life starts transforming itself you are being raptured right away. So the rapture starts within the soul, by the thunders revival, so the rapture is going on right now. You lying hypocrite! People are changing since 1973 to 2002 and they are getting worse, and hear what my Bible says, “We shall be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised”. The last trump is going to bring the change. In that second school you spiritualized even the rapture and the translation. You are exposed! I hope this meets you somewhere behind your bars of interpretations. Rapturing faith? Are you claiming rapturing faith, and are living worse than you used to live a few years ago?

 

The thunders were supposed to produce a power and bring judgment upon the face of the earth. They explained that away and the explanation is that the power of God is not in signs, wonders and miracles; it is in their thunders! It is only in the Word! It is the power of the Word! You lying preachers, dumb dogs of Jerusalem that cannot bark when challenged by the Word of God. The power must follow the Word. Jesus was the Word, and He was vindicated by power, signs and wonders. And He promised the church, the Bride, the same power.

 

And these signs shall follow them that believe…” (Mark: 16:17:18).

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my father”. (John: 14:12).

 

The Bible says that you will be here in the end-time and would deny the power of God. When you deny the power of God that makes you Jannes and Jambres, the false anointed ones in the end-time, but your folly is getting ready to be made manifest. (2 Tim: 3: 5-9).

 

They explained the judgments of God away. “Do you know what is the judgment of God? The Judgments of God is when you deny the ‘thunders’.” A man like me will come under the judgment of God. According to their doctrine, we are lost down here at Bethel because we came against the “Thunders”. I have been preaching against it for better than twenty-five years. I’ve been coming against it. Instead of getting weaker, I am getting stronger. All these people are speaking from behind ten inches thick bars and I am not afraid of any of them. I stand on the Word of God, my friend. We belong to the school of Brother Branham. Yes! We belong to the program he prophesied about. We are going to stay right there to the end.

 

All my friends came out of this first school and went preaching “thunders”. Yes, your roots are in New York. Preachers I want to find out where you got the thunders. I want to know when you were not preaching “thunders” for ten years or fifteen years if you were wrong. Then if you were not wrong, then I am not wrong tonight.

 

Therefore I have proven to you in no uncertain terms that the second school of thought made a false claim and they did not produce what the real thunders are supposed to produce, therefore they are false. I do not care which Godfather he is, which man followed Brother Branham, how many years he preached. You belong to the second school and you are anointed of the devil and you are speaking from the House of Hell. You have my brothers and sisters in the House of Hell and we are coming for them. We are coming with their deliverance. We are waiting on God’s real program. We are waiting on the right time. We are waiting for the right hour. We are waiting for the right day. It is going to be about the time of the coming of the Lord, when the seven thunders are going to be broken to the public, and when we come down there we will be coming in the power of the Holy Ghost, by another outpouring of the Holy Ghost, and we will break the prison bars of interpretations. Every prison bar in that House of Hell is an interpretation of the seven thunders. Ten inches thick bars. Every bar is an interpretation formulated on the seven thunders and the seventh seal.

 

I challenge the world upon this revelation that I am bringing out here and I want you to pick it up preachers. The second school of thought, instead of producing what the seven thunders says they will produce; they produced destruction to the holiness message. The thing that Brother Branham labored for, from 1933 to 1963 to establish holiness, this second school of thought came by and destroyed it-that holiness message. I say that anything that destroys the holiness message of Brother Branham is the devil. It is the false anointed ones! It is the House of Hell! The second school of thought ended up in confusion, fightings, fussing, and thousands of interpretations of the “thunders” that they claimed. The thunders are supposed to bring the Bride into perfect unity. This alone has condemned the second school of thought as anti-Christ, because it divided the people in the message. It did not unite them; it divided the people in the message. They split up families, split up churches, split up brethren. It is of the devil. I make no apologies. What I am saying is the truth. They have thousands of interpretations, thousands of factions, fighting each other everyday. As the time goes on there are more and more factions on the “thunders”. It is not the thunders. We have them in this country and around the Caribbean and around the world. When I speak against these false “thunders” I am not targeting one preacher, or one church. I am targeting the House of Hell, and I have my brothers and sisters in every assembly, and you have your brothers and sisters in every assembly. Their hour of deliverance is soon coming. You’d better get in shape.

^Top^

 

This false move of the devil, second school of thought, ended up in hate, bitterness, adultery, fornication, mixed marriages. I am talking about preachers falling by the hundreds, in fornication and adultery. You want to tell me that is what the Thunders produced? Your Thunders are of the devil. All these things belong to the House of Hell.  All adultery, all fornication, all loose living belong to the House of Hell, and if you are doing that here in Bethel, you belong to the House of Hell yet. If you hate your brother, you belong to the House of Hell. If you have bitterness that you cannot forgive for months and for years, you belong to the House of Hell. If you are committing adultery, you belong to the House of Hell. You committing fornication, you belong to the House of Hell. All those things belong to the House of Hell. If you are a television viewer, you belong to the House of Hell yet.  If you go to movies, you belong to the House of Hell yet. If you are a sports fan, you belong to the House of Hell yet. That is what those false Thunders produce, bitterness. Do not talk about hating a man like me. Brothers and sisters you talking about hatred, bitter hatred. If they had the Thunders they will have love. You talking about hating this congregation, you talking about spreading lies and rumors, on my name. And those are thunders? Crowing like a cock is thunders? False prophecies are thunders? No, you have a lying devil inside of you. Allowing your wife to wear tight dresses and boss the deacons. Is that thunders? A man spirit is in her, controlling the church through her husband. Is that thunders? No my friend. They brought back the television that Brother Branham put out of the church, they brought back the movies, and they brought back the sports. Brethren, false thunders (second school) brought back all of these things in the church. Their thunders are false! Men that used to uphold these standards, since they embraced the false thunders, they went the way of Sodom and Gomorrah. Looking at nakedness on television, looking at the wrong shows, have the television right there and their children looking at men kissing women in their mouth, and man kissing man in their mouth too, and blue movies.

 

They want to tell me those are the thunders. That’s what your thunders produce, the destruction of Brother Branham’s message! I’m no respecter of persons my friend, because I’m not a money beggar, and I am not coming to beg you for money nowhere! God takes care of His servant. I could preach the Word of God here, and establish original standards here, even because I was called by the audible voice of God.

 

Anybody that promotes sports is behind those bars, and you are in the House of Hell. If you’re a sports fan and searching on the papers to see who won and who this and who that, you belong to the House of Hell, you’re behind those bars. If you turn on your radio and you love them sports, you have a spirit upon you.  Oh yes. Imagine the day that this message could reach into such a place, where one assembly in the message, my brother and sister, challenging the other assembly, in cricket, in football, in some other sports. Bethel going down to play Point Fortin, a cricket match Sunday. The Corinthian Church, going to play the Ephesian Church, and Jesus is the captain, and Peter is the goalkeeper, and Mary Magdalene, with her short dress, she is going to spectate. And if a ball goes out of the way she will run for it and throw it. Impossible! Impossible! That is not the picture of the early church.

 

Jesus was not a sports man. None of the Apostles were sportsmen, because all sports are full with pride, competition and self. All sport is full of pride! Anything that has competition is pride; it’s an article of the world. That is why we don’t play sports. It’s of the devil!  Anything that has pride is of the devil! Get down to the Word; the Bible says, “all that is in the world is the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes, and…” what? “…the pride of life.” You ought to take the Word of God and show that sports is the pride of life, and condemn the thing from the pulpit, condemn the preachers, condemn the message believers, for pride. And pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. Study the Word to show thyself approved a workman worthy of acceptance rightly dividing the Word of Truth.

 

Televisions, movies, sports, church versus church; all these are productions of the so-called thunders. Since the thunders came in, my brothers and sisters, the women became more immoral in their dressing. That was never so. Right in this country everybody once dressed like you sisters, with skirts that hang loose; just like Brother Branham said. Cover the knees two or three or four inches. That’s the Word of God. But what do we have? We have the fashions of New York, because the thunders started in New York.

 

You talking about tight dresses, you talking about mermaid style dresses, and what I’m saying about mermaid style dresses is it hugs the woman’s body, where you could see every move that she makes, but it goes right down and covers the feet, almost. And I call that mermaid style dresses, and the very preachers, that used to have their women with long sleeves and had them exaggerated, in their dresses, with pleats, with open skirts, now have them in those mermaid dresses and they dare not open their mouth, because they compromised with it so long.

 

And any time they try to put down their foot, a bundle of women will get together and say, “We are going down to this thunders church. We are going to leave this thunders church and go down to the next thunders church”. And when they get licks over there, they come back this way to this thunders church. That isn’t the thunders friend. It’s of the devil! Open up your eyes. Come to your senses. Before you preached thunders, you had people dressing more morally, you had the women in subjection, and you had your house in subjection. Since you got these thunders you got blind. You allow women to wear high heel shoes in the church for years. Come to your senses. Let us go back to the first school. Come and go with me back to the first school. I remained in the first school. Put your finger on the church if you can. Put your finger on my life, put your finger on my preacher’s life, and put your finger upon my sisters. I’m not talking about the hypocrite you could find few hypocrites. I’m talking about standard friend; I’m talking about message standard. Immoral clothing, men wearing immoral clothing, they’re in all the fashions, big shoes, beard on their faces, fat pants, big sneakers, big jerseys and the preacher say nothing. The Bible say be not conformed to the world but be ye transformed.

 

Brother Branham spoke against all those fashions of the world; you put it under the carpet as a hypocrite preacher. All that you want to say is “thunders, thunders, thunders, thunders”. It’s of the devil! Immoral clothing, fashions of men, fashions of women, tight clothes, mermaid dresses, and on top of that transparent, showing all their under clothes. You’re a nasty woman, and claiming thunders. You’re a nasty preacher to have your congregation dress with transparent clothing, you’re a nasty preacher to have your wife dressing like that, a nasty preacher to have your wife in tight clothing and setting the example for the sisters. You’re demon possessed! That can’t be the Holy Ghost! It’s a devil; you’re anointed of the devil to tolerate that. Brother Branham said when the church gets in that condition, it is because of the weakness of the pulpit. He said, the weakness of the pulpit is reflected in the congregation, and if you have a compromising pastor, he’s taking you to hell and talking “thunders, thunders, thunders”! When we had no thunders we lived more morally.

 

I am showing you what the thunders did. The thunders destroyed the holiness message of Brother Branham, and this thing started since nineteen seventy three. On top of these clothing, under clothes are showing; minister’s wife in it. Now they climb up in the mermaid dress, transparent clothing, on high heel shoes, and they made a difference now and say that Brother Branham was not talking about high heel, he was talking about the spike heel, about ten inches long, or twelve inches long, that went down as a spike. You lying hypocrite! Brother Branham spoke about a dream and a woman said that she could go into the kingdom of God and walk the narrow road with her high heel shoes on, and she said I will show you, and she fell into a dark chasm and went down into the House of Hell.

 

 Anything that condones those high heel shoes is in the House of Hell. Anything that wears immoral clothing is in the House of Hell. You see how the House of Hell is filled up. Anything that is in sports, television, anything like that, you are in the House of Hell, and you could be seated right here and taking them chances, you are in the House of Hell.

 

Right in the message today thunders produced this.  Hate and despise Bethelites for their modesty. I never dreamed that the day would come when message believers will use nasty remarks against sisters that dress modestly. You’re full of hate! You’re full of thunders of the devil. That’s why you hate the sisters. That is why you call the modest dress “Uniform”. If the schools consider pleated skirts as modesty for the young girls and make them wear it over their knees, I want to say, “You’re more blind than the educators.” If the Pope, could stress modest dressing for the children in the convent and make them wear pleated clothing and you condemn that, you’re demon possessed, and the Pope is more spiritual than you. Oh yes! Come on don’t get tired with me here tonight, I am about my father’s business. Yes sir! A full soul loathes a honeycomb, but every bitter thing is sweet to a hungry soul. And to hear the rejoicing of my brothers and sister in Africa, when they hear a man stand up for the message and the Word of God. They glorified God in me. Yes my brother!

 

You want to despise this honeycomb, then go and sleep. People are hungering somewhere to hear the truth. “I am tired of hearing that revelation; one thing every night”. You’re blind and you’re deaf. You have not heard anything yet. The Word of God is sweeter than a honeycomb. Yes sir! If you’ve already heard that revelation, what about the presence of God? Every night is a new experience. You might hear similar things, but what about the experience of the Holy Ghost? It’s a new thing this year, and what makes it new is the presence of God, and the presence of God increases every year, and that is what we come after. We come after fellowship. We come after the Spirit of God. We come after the charge of the Holy Ghost that will transform our bodies one day.

 

Yes sir! Hate and despise people that wear modest clothing? “Thunders” produce worldly music in the church. How many knows I’m speaking the truth? {Congregation says, “Amen”.] Yes sir! Worldly music, rock beats, country western, all these fast music; the thunders produced that. O yes sir! The drums of Africa were brought down here. Yes sir! You did that thunder preacher! Yes! It got so bad now until they’re cutting their hair now. Cutting their hair. Thunders they’re preaching. Lipstick. Thunders they’re preaching. Nails long like Nebuchadnezzar’s own. Don’t you know that Nebuchadezzar was demon possessed when his nails grew out? And he had an animal character? Nail polish, and they use the transparent one, to blind the preacher. You hypocrite! You big hypocrite! Yes sir, and have a spirit like a saw that can’t humble yourself to the deacons. Yes, you better get up and get, you better get born again. Oh yes!

 

Cutting hair, lipstick, nails long, polish and you have woman preachers. writing literatures, and they say I’m not preaching I’m just writing, you have a preaching spirit in you. Oh yes! You have woman preaching the message to their husband and their sissified husband preaching thunders on the pulpit. Oh yes! All these people who practice these thing and commit these sins are behind ten-inch thick bars. I don’t care if you are here tonight or in another assembly, or you don’t belong to the second school; you are behind ten inches thick bars. Oh yes! Can we go a little bit? The second school of thought is the House of Hell. I repeat that again. The house of hell my brothers and sisters, and that dream was given to Brother Branham in 1965. And I will give you a little insight into the dream now before closing. The dream is taken from “WORK IS FAITH EXPRESS”.

DREAM OF THE HOUSE OF HELL

 

24   “ I had a dream, the other morning. I don't dream very often; I'm not a dreamer. But I dreamed that I seen a man, a young fellow in shackles, he was trying to get out, and--and I said... Somebody told me, said, "Those are horrible people; don't have nothing to do with them." And I seen this young fellow getting out of his shackles, so I just let him alone. I thought, "I'll just see what he does." So he got out, and he was a nice fellow. I seen others trying to get out.

Now, this is only a dream. And I walked over this a-way and I seen a Brother Roy Borders, a very good friend of mine, lives in California. Looked like there's something wrong, his eyes was half closed, and great big--maybe cancer or something over his eyes. Now, someone was trying to pull me away from him. I screamed, "Brother Borders, in the Name of the Lord Jesus, snap out of that." And he just barely could speak, saying, "Brother Branham, it'll have to take something more than this. I just can't grasp it, Brother Branham. I just can't grasp it." I said, "O Brother Borders." I love him.

 And someone pulled me away, and I looked, and it was a lady standing over here. When I was a little boy, I used to haul groceries from the grocery store to the people. And her name was Mrs. Fenton; she lives in Jeffersonville yet: a personal friend to the wife and I. And she said, "Brother Branham, deliver us from this." Said, "This is a house of hell." And said, "You've been misunderstood. "And said, " And you misunderstood these people too." Said, "These are fine people. "I looked over there, and like a great big cellar, or big walls, down beneath a great big cave, and great iron bars, eight or ten inches thick. And people, out of their mind, twisted arms and legs, beating their head like that. And she was crying, saying, "Deliver the people, Brother Branham." Said, "Help us; we're in trouble. "She herself, I know her, she belongs to the--I believe the Church of Christ, or the Christian Church, called Church of the Brethren.

                 looked around, and I said, "I wished I could." And go on, looking around…My little, bitty body and them great, big iron bars, and those poor people in there, and you couldn't get to them, them iron bars was setting close together. And I looked, and they were beating their head like they were out of their mind.

And I seen some lights flickering around in there. And I looked up, and there stood the Lord Jesus with the 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 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 the rocks a-rolling, and bars a-falling; and people running, screaming, "Delivered!" and screaming at the top of their voice, and was all delivered. And I was screaming then, "Brother Roy Borders, where are you? Where are you? God is delivering His people. Where are you, Brother Borders?" I've wondered about that.” (Works is Faith Expressed 26/11/65).

 

Brothers and sisters the first thing that Brother Branham saw in this dream was a believer of the message, behind ten inches thick bars, and his name was Brother Borders, and Brother Borders had a cancer over his eyes and he could hardly speak. The first person Brother Branham saw in the House of Hell dream was a message believer. You figure that out how you want. And he had a cancer over his eyes, and Brother Branham told him, “Brother Borders snap out of that”. He said, “I can’t Brother Branham”. He said, “I can’t grasp it.” He said, “Brother Borders in the Name of Jesus Christ snap out of that”. He said, “Brother Branham, it will take more than that to do that.” Hear me my friends with the voice of an archangel, the people, the message followers, that are behind these ten inches thick bars in the House of Hell, it takes more than preaching, more than tracts, more than books, more than ministers meeting, and more than arguments, to get them out of from behind these prison bars.

 

You put them to sit down in the greatest revival and you tell them to snap out of that brother, stop compromising brother, and come back to the first school brother. The answer is “I can grasp it brother, it will take more than that to get me out brother.” You are in the House of Hell. Change it. Let somebody change it. Let somebody change what I’m saying. Brother Borders was a message believer and no common message believer. He was a manager of Brother Branham’s Campaigns. He was responsible for SPOKEN WORD publication. And I followed Brother Border’s history from 1972, because of this dream; and I met him and I looked over his eyes, to see if he had any cancer. Brother Borders had a pacemaker in his heart but never had any problem, and died without any natural cancer over his eyes. Can the dream fail? If there be a prophet among you I the Lord will speak unto him in visions and dreams and if what he says comes to pass then believe him for he is my prophet. Is that right? [Congregation says, “Amen”.]

 

Now I make no apologies for this, I came in contact with Brother Borders in 1972, and he who was not suppose to preach, Brother Branham told him he’s a business man, we had a ministers meeting and Brother Borders got up and showed the spiritual cancer over his eyes. I was present, and this is how he showed it. Because he knew I was there and several brothers, who were looking for the power of God, he said, “You’re looking for something great? The devil is sure going to give you something great”. He denied the power of God. I believe Brother Borders made it in, thank God for that. But brothers and sisters, he displayed that spiritual cancer that day, and the spiritual cancer was unbelief in the promise of God. Unbelief in another outpouring. Unbelief in another revival to come. And he never died with any cancer over his eyes, therefore that cancer was a spiritual cancer of unbelief. And when you have unbelief in the Word of God, when you have criticism in the Word of God, when you have a haughty spirit against your pastor, you are being eaten by cancer. Time to get upon your knees. Oh yes! Can we go on! [Congregation says “Amen!”]

 

In that dream my friend, a young man was coming out of the shackles, and Brother Branham said, he’s not going to help him, and without the help of Brother Branham the young man broke the shackles and he came out by himself. But they were good people. Brother Branham said that young man who broke that shackle was a nice man. And he realized that he was a good man. Then there were good people that misunderstood Brother Branham and Brother Branham misunderstood them, and they said, “Brother Branham this is a House of Hell. Deliver us”. Brother Branham said, “I can’t, I have no power to break those bars.” He could not deliver them, but they were nice people.

 

Brother Branham said, when he looked at the House of Hell, he saw a big cellar (that will be something like a basement in America). He said he saw great walls and people inside there. He said he saw a big cave. That is what the second school produced. The second schools produced those bars of interpretations. The second produced cancer over people’s eyes, cellars, walls, big caves. The second school of thought did that. Iron bars. Yes! When he looked down, he said people were out of their minds in the House of Hell. That is what the second school has produced, my brother. It took them into a dimension, an imaginary dimension, and got the people mad, mentally insane. Here is the dream for it. Yes! People out of their minds, and their arms and legs were twisted. Of course, that is spiritual. “Straighten up your legs least that which is lame be turned out of the way, and lift your hands that are hang down”.

 

Twisted arms and legs and they were beating their heads against the iron bars, trying to figure out more interpretations. This is what the thunders produce. This is what you produced, a House of Hell that locked up my brothers and sisters, and they were crying in there, like you hear the cries, “come and deliver us, help us”. Have you heard some cries? Have you heard some cries for deliverance? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] Did you hear some cries to come and help us? We’ve got to wait for that hour. There is an hour, there is a time, and there is a program my beloved friend. We cannot run before the Lord. Beating their heads. The dream said that they were out of their minds; and beloved all these thunders people are out of their minds. It is false thunders that put them up there. And something happened, closing remarks.

 

Brother Branham was unable to loose those people, and I must mention that organizational people were in there also, a lady that belonged to a church. So this deliverance is not only coming to the followers of Malachi 4, it is also coming for the elect in organization. And brothers and sisters, Brother Branham noticed something. He noticed that Christ was standing in there-He visited them, and there was a rainbow light flashing. There was a rainbow covenant Christ, Revelation 10:1. A rainbow covenant Christ was inside of there, and he told Brother Branham to deliver these people, and he left immediately. And then Brother Branham said, “How can I do that? These bars are to thick”. But then something came to him, and how that deliverance came from the House of Hell, he said, “House of Hell, give away to the Name of Jesus Christ”. What was not done by his arm, was done by the spoken word. That’s your real thunders. That was your real third pull. That’s the real ministry that is going to come on the face of the earth.

 

Christ left immediately from inside of there, and He told Brother Branham, He said, “Deliver these people”. My friend, must I sit down and wait for Brother Branham to resurrect from the dead? I have news for you. I am going to prove the resurrection doctrine wrong by this dream. Brother Borders is dead. Must brother Branham be resurrected to come and resurrect Borders? And deliver him? No my friend! Brother Branham was representing something and that is the end time ministry and Brother Borders was representing the followers of the message. If Brother Borders was representing the followers of Malchi.4, Brother Borders was nowhere to be found when Brother Branham said, “Brother borders where are you, where are you”, because he died already.

 

Now that is the true Ministry of the thunders now coming, after the second school, through the false anointed ones, bewitched the people throughout the world, my brother, the real thunders are now going to come by God’s real program and God’s real five fold ministry, and it is going to go out in the promises that were made concerning the thunders. This group is going to move with the new Name. (It’s not “Jesus” and it’s not “Word of God”.) This group is going to move in the power of the third pull, in the power of the seven thunders, and they are going forward. And when they go out there they have the spoken word, and these bars are spiritual interpretations, and the bars are the things that were holding our brothers and sisters, and the Spoken Word went forth there and said, “ House of Hell give away to the Name of Jesus Christ”. And he said the sealing start popping, and the bars start falling down. Is that right? When that power of God comes, my beloved, then you are going to see sparks flying Brother Branham said. He said somebody will catch this vision and take it on, and sparks will fly. Yes! “I believe it with all my heart”.

 

There is a great time coming and we do not condemn our brothers and sisters. No! We are not condemning our brothers and sisters. We are not saying everybody in the message are devils and we are the children of God. No sir! We are saying that the second school of thought bewitched good people, brothers and sisters, and their time of deliverance is coming by the real thunders. And when the real thunders comes, it is going to come in power and fulfill all the promises that Brother Branham said, about the thunders. It is going to unite the Bride overnight, because it is going to be broken to the public, just before the rapture takes place.

 

So every assembly that is behind these bars, the interpretations will be exposed and God’s children will jump out of there, and they will be your true brothers and sisters, they will hug yours necks, and you will hug their necks. Yes! And they will confess that they were deceived by those false thunders. And overnight the power of God is going to go forward and they would recognize the manifestations of the third pull. Don’t you see what is happening? Because they know that will be God when they see that third pull manifested. God has an army training right now in a few places of the world to manifest that power. And when that is manifested, they would recognize the third pull power. They would realize that is what the thunders suppose to produce. So first you would have a gathering, and that will be the real “seven thunders revival”. Yes! A revival signifies the Word of God in Power. And when that start moving, they are going to move with so much power, signs and wonders, that brethren in these assemblies, the sincere ones, will see that and jump out and give up their false thunders. Yes! And when they give up these false thunders, the Bride will start coming together, “New Name” will be revealed, and when that New Name is revealed, we’ll be going in the power of that New Name, because it’s the thunders.

 

My brothers and sisters it will be a common thing to raise the dead, and judgment will begin at the House of God. Do you see where that fits in? The “seven Thunders” is a judgment ministry, so judgment begins at the House of God, and when that preacher stand up there and say that Bruce is false, and this chandler, don’t bother with him, my brother, a prophecy will come forth. You believe it? [Congregation says, “Amen”.] Didn’t Brother Paul do that? Wasn’t Ananias and Sapphira struck dead? Didn’t Brother Branham say another Ananias and Sapphira showdown is coming? I prophesy that it is going to be exercised on some of these preachers first; some of these false anointed ones, in order to deliver the congregation. (The white horse rider, Christ’s ministry by the Bride, drove the next horse rider off the trail).

 

And there is going to come a power to the Bride. By then the power of God has already come, the Capstone is already in the Bride, the great outpouring comes upon the Bride of Christ, and then she starts moving in power. It is going to take about 3 to 6 months, to loose all of God’s children from the prison houses. That is what the thunders suppose to produce. Don’t you see the Picture?

 

It’s a clear picture! First a Bride’s revival that brings a unity, we’ll be carrying the New Name power, anybody that plays the fool, the judgments will fall upon them. And while that judgment go out there, my brothers and sisters, now the Bride is being made up, and certain things start revealing. Now that new Name has to do with the translation. Didn’t the prophet say so? There got to be something to change this church, no man had known that, but only He had known that etc.  That’s how the Prophet put it.

 

So the new Name, having this new Name, is the key to the translation, so you get the new Name Yes! And then you start going. And by that new Name, the dead will be raised, and it will bring forth the first resurrection. Do you think that you will doubt that you are going in the rapture then? [Congregation says, “No”.] Because it happens by the new Name. So they will rise first, and after they rise first by the power of that new Name, (All that has to do with the trumpet now, that will sound) revelation, after revelation, after revelation, comes until you are changed in the moment in the twinkling of an eye at the last trump, and then the rapture will take place, by the seven thunders. There we are!

 

Can this nonsense that they call the seven thunders, be compared with the real thunders? [Congregation says, “NO!”] Definitely! Therefore the second school of thought is exposed as satanic, imaginary, of the false anointed ones, and all that are in that school, should leave that school immediately, and contend for the real program of God, and the real thunders to come soon to the church. My brothers and sister, that hour is approaching us right now, and I believe that soon and very soon, with what is happening upon the earth right now in Israel, and the surge of the Spirit that is moving in our midst, I believe, that outpouring of the Holy Spirit could come at any moment. “ My advice to you is to be ready, for suddenly like the day of Pentecost, we will hear about a sound from heaven in some part of the world that it is suppose to fall, and we must be ready children.

 

Now the Lord is not anointing us like that, and this great surge of the spirit is not moving in this fashion, here for all those months for nothing, it is trying my brothers and sisters, to shake you up, to bring you into a place, ready and fit for the master’s use. There is a crop growing in some part of the desert, and we believe that we are part of those people. Yes! God has a crop somewhere that is growing. Yes! Let us Repent, and let us continue with this repentance, let us continue with prayer, let us continue with worship, carry the secrets of the prayer closet into the prayer closet, get down upon your knees, fast and pray, call upon God. The time is coming, and who is going, is going, and who is coming, is coming. Yes! The seed will leave the shuck behind. Only the seed is going to go in the rapture and who goes, goes, and who comes, comes. Yes!

 

God Bless our brothers in Africa. God Bless our brothers in India, in Europe. God bless our Brother Gaitan. Bless our brethren in North and South America that are contending for the faith. Yes! Some of you here are too full, you heard to much revelation, you get to much of a shepherding, it’s about time that the rest of the world hear the message of the hour. Yes! And it is going to go in power. The Lord is going to break the seven thunders to the public just as He promised, and people will hear this message of Brother Branham in power, and this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached into all the world and then shall the end come. You’d better get up and get my friends, don’t slack around. Get that Laodicean devil off from you. [Repentance, prayer and worship continued for more than half and hour. Ed.]

SECOND SCHOOL OF THOUGHT

EXTRACT OF LETTER 17-10-2001

PASTOR MICHAEL - FREETOWN SIERRA LEONE

 

This pastor requested our books having read a few of them, and with a very gentle attitude identified himself with the second school of thought. There is a remarkable difference in his doctrinal projections, he believes that the 7th seal/ 7th thunders was not revealed in 1963 but seeks to justify that it was mysteriously revealed. Our questions to him from the first school of thought are when? Where? And on what tape was it revealed by Brother Branham?

 

PASTOR MICHAEL

 

As a minister of the gospel of our Lord, one that earnestly contending for the faith, which was once delivered unto the saints, I thought it fit to freely share with you my opinion. As I read your books, I understood that you brethren as defectors do believe that the 7th seal was not opened neither revealed by the prophet messenger for this day.

 

SEVENTH SEAL WAS OPENED AND REVEALED

 

                Notwithstanding, we believe the 7th seal was opened and revealed by Bro. Branham. As you people gave quotes to back up your teachings, so we too have quotes to back ours also. Nevertheless, the quotes are not means or justification but we believe that the bible (Word) must be rightly divided 2 Timothy 2:15 Paul says that “ the letter killeth the spirit giveth life.” I would love to give you a lot of quotes of the prophet but we believe in the working of the Holy Ghost. “Seventy weeks of Daniel pg. 80 Para. 20”.

 

                Please carefully study our teachings i.e. “7th seal was opened” then you can correct us if necessary for we are always ready to learn and make corrections. We believe that the 7th seal was opened.

 

BROTHER BRANHAM SAID, SEVENTH SEAL WAS NOT REVEALED IN 1963

 

                Brother Branham said in “ God of this evil age “01-08-65 pg. 4” and in “And knoweth it not” – 15-05-65 pg. 23 and in other places especially in the revelation of the seven seals pg.557-576 emphatically that “ The 7 seal was not revealed. But then, how can we substantiate these above quotes to just this one in the exposition of the seven church ages pg. 327 Para1- pg. 328 i.e. “ Now this messenger of Mal. 4 and Rev. 10:7 is going to do two things. One: according to Mal. 4 he will turn the hearts of the children to their fathers. Two: he will reveal the mysteries of the seven thunders in Rev. 10, which are the revelation contained in the seven seals. It will be these divinely revealed mysteries truths that will literally turn the hearts of the children to the Pentecostal fathers. Exactly so.” Mind you, he will do two things.

 

SEVENTH SEAL OPENED, REVEALED MYSTERY TRUTHS

 

Again if the 7th seal was not opened, by Bro. Branham, what then was his ministry, and message brought as he 7th Age Messenger? If the 7th seal was not revealed then we are people most miserable and lost, because all the promises of God since the foundation of the world for the Bride would have still remained hidden and perfection would have never been attained neither the fullness of the entire word. The opening of the 7th seal brought the answers of the bride, which can be found only in the thunders, which are the divinely revealed mystery truth that can show the bride (1) how to prepare for her great translation day, (2) that gives her rapturing faith and (3) gives her revival. Amen. Etc.

 

EIGHTH PROPHET OR BRIDE REVEALS THUNDERS

 

If the 7th that contained the 7 thunders was not revealed as you brethren said then who is going to reveal it and when going to be revealed apart from a major prophet? Or are we expecting an eighth prophet or is it going to be revealed by the Bride? Please help us with these questions?

 

SEVENTH SEAL MAKES KNOWN SIX SEALS

 

We believe that the opening of the 7th seal revealed the 7th thunders. We should not have known those thunders or what those first six seals meant had not been the opening of the 7th seal. In all 6 seals, something was heard, seen and said but on the 7th seal, nothing practically was said instead there was silence why? We believe that, was the ministry of the 7th Angel Messenger. Bro. Branham preached the 6 seals and on the 7 seal nothing pertinent was said instead he started narrating mysterious events, visions, dreams, and experiences. All that was to be said had been said by him, fulfilling the opening of the 7th seal as the second phase of his ministry according to c/Ages pg. 327-328 i.e. to reveal the mystery of the 7 thunders in Rev. 10:7. Notice: there is a difference between the 7 seals and the 7th seal

^Top^

 

SEVENTH SEAL OPENED - SILENCE

 

In Rev. 8:1, the 7th seal was open but there was silence, what was the silence then for? And Rev. 10:4, John was asked to seal up those things, which the 7 thunders uttered and write them not. And in Rev. 10:7 “ But in the days of the 7th Angel when he shall…” These mysteries are to be made know by the 7th Angel and not the bride or another ministry. We do not believe in the thunders in any other way or form but we believe it just as the prophet said it that they are the divinely revealed mystery truths that contains in the seal and its these divinely mystery truth that will literally turn our hearts to that of the Pentecostal fathers. Amen.

 

ONE AND AN HALF (1 ˝) HOUR SILENCE

 

You remember Bro. Junior Jackson’s dream “ No sun had shone on this”. It is definitely a secret only to the bride. It was not in there, that was why we had 1 ˝ hrs of silence, it is a brand new revelation from above only to the bride. Oh! Amazing Grace.

 

Brethren, I stop so far as I expect to hear from you soon. Extend my sincere greetings to the saints in your area. Remember us in prayers as we do too. Please if you have email address you can send it for me for the future speedy communication. May the Lord bless us as we a-wait his eminence appearing.   Thanks.                                     Yours in his service Pastor Michael.

BETHEL “THE HOUSE OF GOD”

CALCUTTA ROAD NO.2, P.O. BOX 238

                         FREEPORT, TRINIDAD W.I.

Subject: Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders not revealed.

 1st December 2001 - Reply letter

Brother and Pastor Michael,

                                             Greetings in the lovely name of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your most welcomed letter. It’s a pleasure to be acquainted with you, a fellow servant of Christ. I thank God that we can be agreeable in spirit on the cause of Christ and eternal life, though we differ upon an item of doctrine. I deeply appreciate your honesty and understanding upon the subject of the Seventh seal and Seven thunders outlined by the last church age messenger (Revelation 3:14, 10:7)) on the Seals book pages 557-576. This is complementary, because you are the first minister in the message that openly admitted that undeniable fact to me. Generally all ministers who seek to justify that the Seventh Seal and thunders was revealed by Brother Branham, do so by twisting his words of truth on the mentioned pages.

 

I noticed that you approached the subject with sincerity, and from other quotations of Brother Branham, mainly from church ages pages 324-327. I do understand the basis of your discussion, and will answer your first question on substantiation of quotations. It’s more reliable because the church ages was 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. Quote:

 

“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).

 

“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). This conclusion he maintained for the rest of his life, is evident by his own words up to 1965.

 

The following quotations verifies that Brother Branham did not preach the Seven Thunders in 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:

 

“ 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).

 

“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, forms 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 and 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.

 

Preachers in my region will answer those questions by stating the following:

a)       It was to throw off the people who are not elected.

b)       Brother Branham preached it mysteriously under the Seals and messages after the Seals.

c)       He said on questions and answers in 1964, that the Seven Thunders are revealed in the Seven Seals.

 

Such answers do not address my questions. I am asking, where on tape did Brother Branham alter his conclusion of 1963, and affirmed that it was now revealed to him, thus message believers can disregard his 1963 conclusion? Also, that they can refer to his new message on tape, if any arise with isms on the Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders, and try to wind the believers off the beaten track?

 

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 was 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 broadcast all six seals and their revelation that very week?

 

New to me is the concept that the Seventh Seal’s silence was the one and an half hour silence, when Brother Branham came to the subject of the Seventh Seal, and said nothing pertinent to it. Where can I find such revelation in the Word and message? The spirit giveth life and revelation, but we know it’s the Spirit only when the letter of the Word bare witness of any revelation. Was William Branham really silent about the Seventh Seal? He said it was the coming of the Lord that it is not opened, along with many other things on the Seventh Seal and it’s revelation, at that time. Quote:

 

“Seven thunders uttered straight together like they're spelling out something. Notice, at that time, John started to write, and He said, "Don't write it." Jesus never spoke of it. John couldn't write it. Angels know nothing about it. What is it? It's the thing that Jesus said even the Angels of heaven didn't know nothing about it. See, see? He didn't know it Himself, said only God would know it, but He told us when we begin to see these signs coming up.” (Seventh Seal page 558 24/3/63).

 

“no one would know His coming; they also would not know about this seven thunder mystery. So you see, it's connected together. That much we have a understanding of it today, because the rest of it is all unfolded, but this is not unfolded.” (Seventh Seal page 576 24/3/63).

 

Also new to me is your statement that the Seventh Seal/Seven Thunders revealed what the six seals meant, and gave all answers to the Bride’s preparation for the rapture, rapturing faith and her revival. 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 was not revealed nor preached even until his departure?

 

Concerning your questions, “When and to whom will the Seven Thunders be revealed, the Bride or an eight messenger?”  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:

 

“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 is silent, 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: 

 

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:

 

“Now, now, do you notice on the opening of this Seventh Seal, it's also in a threefold mystery. This one I have--will speak and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the seven thunders. The seven thunders in heaven will unfold this mystery. It'll be right at the coming of Christ, because Christ said no one knew when He would return…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. I trust that you can give consideration to my questions and furnish some answers with reference to the scriptures and message. It’s the only way to recognize “God’s real program”. Hanging my soul upon any private interpretation is to be lost. Maybe I will better understand that you are presenting to me God’s Seventh seal program after you furnish me with answers to my questions. “My sheep hear my voice”. I am enjoying our friendly discussion. I left off several other questions on the subject, “The Seventh Seal was revealed”, for another time, after you respond to this letter. Your request for literature is welcomed and would be sent to you shortly.

 

May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon you and the saints at your assembly, and also all in that region of Africa. May he mend his broken body is my prayer. Amen!               Your Servant For Christ sake.  Dalton Bruce.

  My precious brother ,                                    ( Second school’s - second letter)

               

                I bring you greetings from Africa in the wonderful name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who hath opened our spiritual eyes of understanding at last . May His name be praised eternally Amen. Thank you very much for your reply on the subject of (7seals/7thunders not revealed). How good it is to know that we’re brothers of like precious faith. ‘whether Christ will be coming on a white or red horse does not matter. What matters is that we both believe that He’s coming again and that settles it.’’ Thank God, both of us believe that Mal. 4 :5-6b and Rev. 10 :7 are being fulfilled. Amen .

 

                Brother, I believe in teaching the truth to correct the error than to withstand the error with the truth. (Church /ages pg. 219 para 2). Again, Paul says in 2nd Cor. 3 :6  ‘the letter killeth but the spirit giveth life’’. Some of us are not priviledged to come in contact with most of the message books and tapes but there are many things we believe before coming in contact with this evening light message that we found to be the truth. Likewise the revelation of this message, I’ve not yet listened or read all the messages but that was not a problem or a criteria before God could open my spiritual eyes of understanding. He gave me a heart to believe the revelation of this message even though as a novice, but as I thirst to learn, study in prayers and fasting, I grew in maturity.

 

                Brother, I have always believed in the leadership and witnessing of the Holy Ghost than intellectualism and human smartness and knowledge. I do all by His grace in the Spirit, by the Spirit and with the Spirit and for the praises of His holy name. I am not a seven thunders preacher (if there is anything or name like that), I am a servant of God, a believer and a preacher of the Gospel of our Lord even as it is written.

REVELATION 8:1 SEVENTH SEAL WAS OPENED. IT’S SILENCE.

 

                My brother, I cannot understand you saying that the seventh

seal/seven thunders were not revealed. The Bible says in Rev. 8: 1 ‘seventh seal was opened and there was silence in Heaven………..’’. It was opened. Don’t forget in Rev. 5, this book was sealed and it was in the hand of Him that sat on the throne. Thank God for the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David who prevailed to open and to loose the 7 seals thereof. And in Rev. 6, the first 6 seals were opened and nothing was said absolutely about the 7th seal. And Brother Branham now gave the right interpretations of what the first 6 seals meant. And in Rev. 8: 1, the 7th seal was opened, and in the Rev. 10: 1-4 the Mighty angel came down from Heaven with a little book opened and cried with a loud voice and 7 thunders again uttered their voices, and John heard what they uttered so he was about to write but he was asked to seal up those things till the appointed time and in verse 7 the Bible says ‘but in the days of the voice of the 7th angel when he shall begin to sound the mystery of God should be finished.’’

 

                Brother, if we believe (which I believe we do) that Bro. Branham came to fulfill those Scriptures, why then is the controversy as to whether the seals were revealed or not. This is Bible, and if we cannot see and accept the Bible then, it will be difficult to believe what the Prophet/Messenger said (we can’t understand our algebra if our ABC’s are not first understood). ‘But in the days of the voice of the 7th angel………’’, then all mysteries including what the 7 thunders uttered should be finished as they will be revealed. If they were not revealed, then where did the bride for this age come from, and what attracted her to come out of denominationalism? And if the 7 thunders are not yet revealed, when and who is going to reveal them even as the coming of our Lord is so eminent than we think.

 

                I believe the secretiveness of the opening of the 7th seal was exactly what Rev. 8: 1 says (the silence) and that also reminds us of Brother Junior Jackson’s dream ‘no sun had shone on this’’. When was this incident? Why did Brother Branham make statements such like ‘you can’t teach Pentecostal babies these mysteries……….’’. And you remember the dream or vision of himself, trying to lace a baby’s shoe with bigger laces for the particular shoe.  What about the dream or vision that he had, when he pulled a small fish with a bigger hook and as he was about to remove the hook from the fish’s belly, the intestines of the small fish came together……….etc. I am sure you understand what I’m trying to say. These are but few evidences that the 7th seal/7 thunders were revealed but mysteriously and it is only meant for the bride. Mind you, this is the last age and last messenger since the creation, nothing so significant was promised as this end time.

 

                My brother, I cannot understand you saying ‘the outline was documented by the editor and there is no proof.  Well, if we start to make such statement when Bro. Branham himself edited the 7c /ages for years before later distributed in 1965 we will definitely end like some of the denominations who always argue  that, this or that quote  was  only  for the church at Corinth and not for us Then we might as well cut  those quotes off.  If I got you right, you also mentioned that because the church ages was preached three years before the seals, then more explicit conclusions was made by Bro Branham of the seals not reveal than in the church ages

        

Again according to church ages pg 324-328, this messenger will do two things: (1) To Restore (2) to Reveal the mysteries of the 7 thunders that are contained in the seals. Indeed it was a mystery since Bible days but now been revealed and it is this divine revealed mystery truth that are contained in the seals that will literally turn the heart of the Bride. Bro Branham was teaching on the c/ages but making references of the 7 thunders and seals even though it was three years later when the seals were revealed and preached yet still the Holy Ghost  made no mistake Amen  You remember the Sabino canon incident of the king’s sword. May God help us, is my prayer

       

Brother, the message on marriage and divorce is among the other mysteries like the Serpent Seed, Mystery Babylon, The Mystery that surrounds the Rapture and they like, that were hidden, but now revealed in these end times and it is not a special message. There are many other quotes and references that I wish to share, but I believe I have sincerely and joyfully reply to your letter with a heart of brotherly love.  I don’t know or argue about what the message preachers in your region are saying, but I am only responsible to say and live out what the Prophet /messenger have left with us, Amen.

 

         My brother, my earnest desire is to reach the unreachable by His Grace in any way or form with this glorious message of this evening light. It is high time we begin to see the manifestation of the promises of the Bride. It is later than we think to be finding faults with one another. I always ran into tears when I see children of God caged in denominational barriers.  I feel like screaming above my voice so that they can be liberated, is my prayer for us as message preachers

      May the peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ rest upon you and the Saints in your area as we labour and wait in His vineyard.  Extend my sincere greetings to my Pastor brother and all, until then.

                Stay blessed. Yours in His service, Pastor Michael

      Date: 09-01-2002 – reply letter

       Dear Pastor and Brother Michael

               

                Greetings in his wonderful name from Trinidad, the Caribbean and South America, to you and all in Africa, especially the saints and pastors in your area. I wish you, all the best for year 2002 may he outpour his final quickening for the rapture this year is our prayer, may you all be recipients of his fullness. I meant to write earlier, but got busy from church to church exhorting the saints, toward the end of the year and most important having completed book: 4 “Exposition of Damnable Heresies” “Five major doctrinal divisions” you can visit our website if you wish to read it.

 

                I read your letter of late last year 2001 replying to my questions upon the subject of the seventh seal/seven thunders which under our friendly discussion, you acclaimed, was revealed by W.M.B but not in 1963, because he made it explicitly clear that it was not revealed on seal book page 567-575. This understanding and honesty I complimented since you are one of the first ministers in your region who ever admitted that fact to me, who seeks to justify that the seven thunders are revealed.

 

                 Then I asked several honest questions: when? Where? And what tape reference do you have of this most important event, which should be the interpretation of the unknown language which held the secret of the seven thunders, confirmed by W.M.B. I cannot read into my writing and simple questions, intellectualism, human smartness, the letter killeth, etc. In your letter I searched for the answers to my questions and could not find them, several of them you failed to address, maybe you have another letter coming since you said there were several quotations which you yet had, to support your beliefs. I need them if they can answer my questions when? And where? The unknown language was revealed to Brother W.M.B. since that was holding the revelation, of the seven thunders. Only such proof can alter the conclusion of W.M.B. of 1963 that the seventh seal was not revealed to him, and cause the elect to disregard his stern, warnings of trying to interpret the 7th seal that was not open. I know this is beyond human smartness, which any can see. The repetition of Ch. Age: Pg. 324-328 quotations does not address my questions, nor the quotations of the dreams, visions or experiences of Brother W.M.B., and certainly Rev: 8-1 is taken out of the scriptural context. These statements I will now proceed to defend in a scriptural manner and by the message of W.M.B. since I may chose to document some of these friendly discussions in my literatures. Even as I employed some of those facts on the subject of seven thunders not revealed on book 4 “Exposition of Damnable Heresies” with others that are amazingly hostile, thus the contrast of attitude can be of edification to our readers.

Church age Page 324-328

 

Upon this declaration of the mission of Malachi 4:5:6 one of them to reveal the seven thunders, my question is yet to be answered. When did W.M.B. revealed the seven thunders? I firmly believe that the revelation of the church ages are inspired of the Lord, so it does not involve the question of the Holy Ghost making a mistake, and that holds well for this quote also.

 

“THE SEVENTH ANGEL WAS TO OPEN THE SIX SEAL MYSTERY”

 (Proving his word. Page 56. 1964)

                Did W.M.B. have two opposing declaration about his mission? However on my first letter to you, I went into details on the above subject. I don’t want to waste time repeating myself, the same answer goes for your question” if Brother W.M.B. did not reveal the seven thunders, who will, and when?” My answers were simple, that is left to the Lord and we better be silent where God and his Prophet is silent. Least I make an ism on the seven thunders a repetition of those questions cannot answer my questions. I guess you being an honest brother knows that and as a result quoted me the scripture Rev: 8:1 “ And when he had opened the seventh seal” that’s the way it should be word supported by the interpretations of W.M.B.

 

I am embarrass to say brother that you have misplaced a great scripture (Rev: 8:1) to prove your subject “seventh seal were revealed”. Brother Branham read the same scripture before he spoke on the seventh seal subject in 1963 and concluded that the seventh seal was not opened to him. You are misplacing the scripture to say, “ it was opened” When? Where? What date, time, and message? Rev: 8:1 were written there since A.D. 96 along with Chap 6 and the sixth seals, but the book was sealed. Even John who wrote those words “and when he had opened”(the seals), he had no revelation on the seals. Any false Prophet could use those words to condemn the opening of the seals in 1963, saying, the bible said that each seal was opened they would be wrong. Thus it don’t make your understanding right. I heard that same interpretation of Rev: 8:1 from the Godfathers of the message in the Caribbean, and North America. As a precious brother I don’t think that you should bare their reproach and shame of misplacing the word.

 

Your question, if the mysteries inclusive of the thunders was not revealed where the bride came from and what attracted her out of denominationalism.

 

 My answer is simple to a simple question. She came out of denominations by what mysteries that was revealed by the seventh Ch. Age messenger, she was out already, when he said the seven thunders was not revealed to him. Seven thunders Brother has to do with translation faith and God has a program which none should mess up. Again that point is very premature like the visions dreams and experiences you quoted in support of the conception “seven seal were revealed mysteriously”. May we consider those statements.

 

 (A). No sun had shun on this (Jackson’s Dream) - when was this incident? Certainly Brootther, when the seventh seal was not revealed to W.M.B. in 1963.

 

(B). “ You can’t teach Pentecostal babies these mysteries” it said “supernatural things” not “mysteries”. The angel of the Lord explained to Brother W.M.B. that was when he explained to the Pentecostals the first and second pull, which pertained to discernment and healings.

               

(C). “ Trying to lace a baby’s shoe with bigger laces”. This was the same interpretation the angel gave concerning explaining the secrets of the first and second pull, which caused carnal impersonations by false prophet.

               

(D). “Small fish with bigger hook, Intestines pulled out”. The angel explained to Brother W.M.B. that he tried to catch the big fish by the second pull, which fitted over the hook. You have certainly misplaced Rev: 8-1 and the above quotations in your zeal to prove your subject. This is an evident token of misconception by taking a third pull experience of the resurrection of the little fish, with entrails pull out, and with all good intensions, confuse the natural fish with the fish of the third pull vision.

 

                Brother your letter have expressed to me your love, care and a wonderful Personality, when you spoke of your tears, finding faults with each other and your method of teaching the truth to correct error, than to withstand error with the truth. With all love and respect to you brother, I must let you know that I perceive that you have mixed your personality with scriptural standards of doctrine and apostolic principles of contending for the faith, Ch. Age Page 219, which you referred to for your adopted standards belong to the dark ages 606-1520 and was employed by Columba.

 

 Brother Branham never employed such method, but withstood error with the truth, even like apostle Paul, Peter, John and Jude who said contend, (do battle, fight) for the faith. Such personality will always go the way of least resistance, like water. Today that way amongst message Preachers and believers is that the seventh seal/seven thunders were revealed. Though they are unable to show when, where and what tape did brother W.M.B. declared that the unknown language was made known, thus revealing the seven thunders.

 

I have chosen apostolic pattern along with Brother W.M.B. standards of resisting errors with the truth. This is clearly manifested in my Preaching and Present books “Exposition of Damnable heresies” 1-4. Thus I can understand in my preaching your position of disagreeing with my method, because I have dealt with many who are established upon the “Love Gospel” (So-called), which was borrowed from the W.C.C. to foster unity. Your reply is welcome. May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you, and all in that region.

Your servant   Brother Dalton Bruce

My precious Brother,                                            (Pastor Michael’s third letter.)

 

                Unto whom that is worthy to prevail, to open the book and to loose

the seven seals thereof. Even the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the root of David. May His   name be praised eternally, amen. Thanks for your reply, I am very sorry for the   delay in replying, I have being so much occupied these days, in our Father's vineyard. My brother, by His grace I believe the old truth and not but the truth. I believe as believers of this message we must stay with the truth which is the word  in fullness, and to help others believe as we have, and to filled with the Holy Ghost which is the token and the symbol of the token is to say "amen to every word” as quotes are taken from the bible by preachers to justify their beliefs  likewise many message Preachers are doing today with the message of the hour. But I am not responsible for the inconsistency around the message.

                                                

 I'm responsible to listen to the truth, believe the truth, live out the truth, and to stay with the truth. My brother, from our communication I have now come to realize that you believe that "the seventh seal was   not open neither revealed”. Whiles I believe that it is open and revealed. So we can't continue justifying ourselves. Instead of building God's kingdom we are scattering. So I'm suggesting that we stop the pulling   and drawing and let the brotherly love continue, praying for the furtherance of the kingdom even as His coming is eminence. I'm kindly asking you to explain to me the ministry of Bro. William M. Branham according to the bible and    the message. My brother I may like to let you know that nobody revealed this message to me not even our overseas Preachers. The Holy Ghost Himself did His work in me even though I was a novice in the message.

 

How much more by His grace I am becoming a man now. It's by prayerfully studying that I knew that the seventh seal was open and revealed so how can I deny that revelation now. How long can we quoting the Prophet. Indeed he said it was not known but how can    we reconcile that with the other quotes that said it is open? So we need to substantiate and rightly dividing the quotes. "Gal. 1: 8" (Though we, or an angel…). Until then God bless you as you continue to work in His vineyard.                                                 Pastor Michael.

Date: 12-02-02 Dear Pastor Michael. Fayiah. Nyuma.              (Reply Letter)

Greetings in the lovely Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Thank you for your email dated: 11-02-02, expressing your wise decision to close our friendly debate on the subject seven seals/ seven thunders revealed. Our communications were very pleasant and will be long remembered and would possibly be documented on my literatures to edify others, as they observe our friendly disagreements on doctrines, the right attitude manifested and continuance of love, respect and brotherly kindness, even when one is proven wrong and failed to address questions of the other party.

I think it has become necessary to close our discussions since you have again, for the third time failed to address my questions. If the seventh seal was not revealed in 1963 by W .M.B when? Where? And on what tape did he preach or reveal it? Also when? And where? Was the unknown language made known to reveal the seven thunders, which alone can justify the warnings of Brother Branham, not to make isms on the seven thunders because it is not revealed.

You and I being conscious that this friendly discussion upon such a vital subject maybe used in my literature, I thought you would embraced more seriously the opportunity I afforded you to defend your claims, more constructively by the word and message, addressing and disproving my projections, proofs and support by word and quotations of the message, especially since I requested quotations, you said, that you were holding on the back burner. You said you was a novice in the message but is becoming a man now. I am embarrassed to apply such an attitude to a matured minister, who got the seven seal revelation all by himself.

 

Precious brother I expected, that at least you would address and acknowledge the misquotations and the misinterpretations you made on the Prophet's experience and visions and dream of Brother Jackson. When you try to justify your claims of seven seals/ seven thunders revealed, but instead you asked me another question and made certain statements, which does not address any of my questions "stay with the truth which is the word in fullness." "Symbol of the token is to say amen to every word." "The lion prevailed to loose the seven seals.' "I knew that the seven seals was opened." " I now realize that you do not believe that the seven seal was opened nor revealed." These statements sounds so childish and have forced me to notice that they are used because you do not have the answers to my questions. Please do not tarnish your expressions of sincerity and wonderful personality by discussing doctrinal subjects by this method, as intellectual preachers would not readily excuse you and consider you a matured Christian minister.

 

Brother and Pastor Michael may I state here, that I never had one minister nor lay member from around the world, to address nor answer those questions that I asked you, when? Where? And on what tape W.M.B. preached and revealed that seventh seal / Seven thunders. The simple answers to those questions are, at no time, at no place, and on no tape, can such revelations be found. Therefore such interpretation of the seven thunders is revealed, is founded upon a "death seed" from New York. Which states that brother Branham mysteriously revealed the seven thunders / seventh seal and it is hidden in the message and the elect should climb up into a spiritual atmosphere to receive the revelation. This idea came ten years after the opening of the seven seal book and has no scriptural foundation and not a single quotation of W.M.B. to justify such foolish claims. However this "death seed" was broadcast around the world and have caused much pride and self exaltation in many ambitious believers and ministers, causing them to enter into great delusions, imagining that they are receiving revelation on the seventh seal / seven thunders, all by them selves, when brother Branham clearly stated do not interpret the seventh seal, if you will know anything God will send it to you, and it will be revealed about the time of the coming of the Lord, when the church has need of it, don't make any isms of the seven thunders. Brother Michael let us humble our hearts, walk in simplicity and humility until that hour when the seventh seal is broken to the public, even as the prophet admonished us on the seal book Q&A just before he announced that the seventh seal was not revealed.

I must say goodbye for now in closing our discussions on the aforementioned subject wishing you all the best until we meet again at Jesus feet, yet having our testimonies that we love the Lord Jesus Christ with all our hearts.                                                                           Your Servant Bro Bruce.

SUMMARY OF DEBATE-SHOWS WEAKNESS OF THE                               SECOND SCHOOL OF THOUGHT

 

We have just considered a friendly discussion between those two schools of thoughts. And it can be easily understood that the preacher and student of the second school has no foundation to prove his doctrines though he expressed in his letter a wonderful personality molded by the “love gospel”. The evasive attitude manifested is a typical example of even the greatest men, who project their own interpretations on the seventh seal / seven thunders. Many rely upon the greatest death seed from N.Y. that was formulated in the early seventies which states that: Brother Branham preached the seventh seal / seven thunders mysteriously and it’s hidden in the message. This they ignorantly believe denying the facts of the seventh seal where the prophet emphatically established that the seventh seal was not revealed, don’t misinterpret it, and not to make any ism of it. This nice brother, though willingly confessed that the seal was not revealed in 1963, choose to believe that notorious lie of Satan, “seventh seal mysteriously preached” and cannot give a single quotation to support it, nor can he say when, where, and on what tape did Brother Branham preach it, and much less can he say when was the unknown language interpreted by Brother Branham or another private interpreter, who held the revelation of the seven thunders and consequently the second coming of Christ.

 

One who is honest enough to admit that the seventh seal was not revealed in1963, is expected to maintain such honesty to verify to his opposer’s questions of when, where, and on what message was the seventh seal revealed by Brother Branham, and if that cannot be done on the basis of the Word and message, then the simple answer is to say, “I do not know”, and openly admit that, “I have accepted the unscriptural theory that Brother Branham revealed the seventh seal, mysteriously”. When a minister establishes that interpretation in his congregation and is identified internationally with the second school of thought, and the great names in the message, it is very humiliating for him to climb down from his high horse. He must be evasive of questions that exposes his error, thus he must misplace, misquote and misinterpret the message. We have observed a clear example in our bother’s letters, of this attitude as he twisted the dream, visions, and experiences of Brother Branham. This he has done without any embarrassment or concern of correcting his mistakes even when I pointed out his errors, but continued to ask other questions although our friendly discussions was closed.

 

However I will hereby answer a couple of his questions, which he possibly thinks that I am evading because it is difficult.

 

QUESTION: If Malachi 4:5:6 did not reveal the seven thunders, what then was his ministry?

 

ANSWER:    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, “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:

 

“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).

 

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

 

QUESTION:  The seven thunders was to reveal all the mysteries of God, that we can understand what the six seals meant, if the thunders was not revealed, by Brother Branham what was his ministry?

ANSWER:  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:

 

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. 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 28/7/63).

 

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

 

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).

               

The following is a letter from the second school of thought from Zimbabwe, Africa. The pastor is seemingly standing in defence for doctrines of the Godfathers in America.  His emphasis expressed the “love gospel”, more than proving his doctrines. His letter was so badly constructed in defending his beliefs, that through respect to him as a pastor of the message, he was promised not to have his undated letter duplicated here to save him much embarrassment.

BETHEL “THE HOUSE OF GOD”

08 January 2002

 

Pastor Albert Tarwirey

Kwekwe, Zimbabwe

 

Dear Brother and Pastor, Tarwirey

 

Christian greetings to you and the saints in your region. I wish you all the best for the year 2002.Thank you for responding to “Exposition of Damnable Heresies” I meant to reply earlier but now found the time, only I wish that your letter was more scripturally constructive, of which book you are referring to 1,2,3 or4, with the specific subject matter which you are trying to refute and most important word and message proofs that my spirit of correcting heresies is not of Christ. I don’t mine being corrected for I am not beyond correction but I appreciate it in a scriptural manner, other than quoting the prophet on wrong spirit and right doctrine, which has, became a song against Exposition of false teachings.

 

I am surprised at your conception as a Pastor responsible for the souls of men and women, by which you made the Word of God and message so cheap and common, breaking it down to a matter of different views of ministers which should not be criticized, instead of right or wrong doctrines truth or error, it is true that all has a right to express their feelings that’s freedom of speech and religion and have to do with politics but scripturally no man has a right to add or subtract from the Word of God or message since there is only one revelation of the bible and the message and though an angel come from heaven and try to change that revelation let him be accursed as spoken by Brother Paul (Gal: 1-8-9)

               

The conception you hold of not refuting another man’s doctrine is contrary to the Word and apostolic teachings, Jude said contend for the faith and addressed false preachers of the message by many unfavourable names (Jude: 1) Peter likewise (2Peter chap: 2) and the many epistles apostle Paul wrote, also Jesus in (Matt: Chap: 23) according to your conception they had a wrong spirit but right doctrine and by the same measuring rod you have judged my spirit from Africa way off here in the Caribbean, a man you have never seen nor communicated with, that is highly super-spiritual Brother! You better examine your spirit and your doctrine; your letter gives out an air of defending a personality, a camp and a doctrine that’s contrary to the word and message of Brother Branham, may be you never listened to the tape entitled “the indictment” preached by Brother Branham he certainly did not manifest a compromising hypocritical attitude, maybe he had a wrong spirit according to your wishy washy conception. Have you never read the charge to Timothy by Paul to rebuke, etc. because of false doctrines and some who caters to preachers who can tickle their ear?

 

                Yes is the answer to your question. I would like for any minister brother to refute by scriptures and the message what I have preached or documented in any article, tracts, books, and Internet coverage, but it must be done only by the Word and message, not by any mythical conception of seven thunders, or seven trumpets from New York, Canada or any part of the world.

 

                Your quotation from (ages pg. 327) I am most familiar with, but how can that which was preached in 1960, take pre-eminence above such clarification of the seven thunders subject in 1963(seal book pg 567-575) when Brother Branham said that the seven thunders was in an unknown language and it was not revealed to him? How do you reconcile your use of Brother Branham statement on “Kindergarten” with Jude’s “contend for the faith” (do battle fight)? Many preachers make the prophet speak according to their cowardly conception by misplacing his words and statements.

                The brothers you recommended to help me, Jeremiah, Chikosi (if I would sponsor them), have lost much credibility, before they even contact me, this on account of your weak and unscriptural approach to do so by letter, if they propagate the same concept like you, of not doing battle for the faith, they will serve no purpose for the war is raging here in the Caribbean against all false prophets, false preachers, false doctrines, cults and heresies. Since you are free from all differences of doctrines, as you testified, I can understand that they would be of no use, as we need hardened soldiers without a sissified concept of “don’t fight”, “don’t contend”, “taste not”, “handle not” and don’t come against other preachers “views”, which is certainly not apostolic.

 

                I will appreciate a more constructive letter of your opposition to any of our articles, refuting our teachings by the word of God and message of Brother Branham, even as we have presented our subjects: line upon line, message upon message. I am sure that you will appreciate reading some of your own letters on our books and website without being embarrassed. Your first letter will certainly bring you much reproach; thus I will refrain from using it, because of my love and respect to you as a minister Brother.

 

                May the Lord bless you with boldness of speech and a scriptural conception of propagating the gospel, even as Jude has set forth the example with the rest of the apostles; crowned off by our brother William Branham. Feel free to write as long as you have something constructive to say in the word and message.                                                         Your servant   Bro. Dalton Bruce                                                                    

 

 By these letters and books, we considered the foundational weakness of the second school of thought upon the subject of seventh seal/seven thunders, which is clearly expressed, whereas the infallibility of the first school of thought, built upon the foundation which the prophet laid, is evidently manifested. Truth has and will always prevail against mythical conceptions of scriptures. The second school of thought, it’s leaders and students are built upon an imaginary, mythical delusion which states that the seventh seal/seven thunders was mysteriously revealed by the prophet, which when challenged cannot be proven by one singular quotation, and needless to say are dumbfounded when asked, “When, where, and on which tape did the prophet preach it mysteriously or openly?” Malachi 4:5-6, Elijah the prophet, Revelation 10:7, was not sent to the church to preach in the form of mysteries, parables, dark sentences and symbols, as in the writing of the Bible, but he was sent to reveal the hidden mystery written within the Book. They might say that it was preached mysteriously, even as the trumpets were preached supernaturally under the sixth seal. Even though the trumpets were supernaturally preached under the sixth seal, Brother Branham looked forward to reveal it, and did not leave it up to the congregation to figure it out, but later stated that it is the ministry of Moses and Elias. Mysteriously is a long way from supernaturally. Thus it does not type out or justify the claim of the seven thunders preached mysteriously by Brother Branham.

 SUMMARY ON SUBJECT OF SEVENTH SEAL/ SEVEN THUNDERS –

TWO SCHOOLS OF THOUGHTS

 

In summary of this vast subject (Seventh seal/seventh thunders – two schools of thoughts), it is of utmost importance to mention a few facts about message ministers and believers in different parts of the world, who also proclaim, very strongly, with infallible proofs, that the seventh seal/seven thunders was not revealed by Brother Branham in 1963. This they do for their own convenience. This does not necessarily qualify them as ministers and students of the first school of thought. They all have various misconceptions of the revelation of the seven thunders.

 

Many have appointed themselves as eighth church age messengers, prophets, Christs, son of man, Indian chief, Joshua, white eagle, Elisha, and the real seventh angel. An account of many in our region that have so exalted themselves, was documented in our last book entitled, “Exposition of Damnable Heresies – Book 4 – Five major doctrinal divisions” (Reference can be made to our website address documented in the back leaf of this book, or requests can be made to our addresses, to have them shipped to you). Reference can also be made to a book that was written in year 2000, entitled, “New Ministry of William Branham Impersonated”.

 

We are fully conscious that our work will be used by such impersonators to disprove the revealing of the thunders in 1963, for their own selfish exaltations, and to propagate themselves as the ones that are now breaking the revelation of the seven thunders to the public. We are sure that the dream of Brother Branham, “The House of Hell”, will be effectively employed by such false prophets, to prove that all who do not believe their revelations are in the House of Hell, and stand in need of deliverance by their ministries.

 

This will certainly be out of place, and misused to the exposition of such false prophets, because according to the dream of Brother Branham, deliverance for those elected children from organizations and the message assemblies comes only by speak the word power. The seven thunders, you will recall, produces many things that the second school of thought has failed to produce – new Name for power and translation, rapturing faith, a Bride’s revival, uniting of the body of Christ, speak the word power, and the judgments of God. These impersonators are exposed presently, in the same manner that all preachers and students of the second school of thought were exposed in our work – Seventh seal/seven thunders perversions. They are powerless, not vindicated by God, and are all based upon dead doctrines of intellectualism, preaching that all is over, emphasizing the letter of the Word, and denying the power of God. They are identified as reprobates by Brother Paul, to arise in the last days - 2 Timothy 3.

 

The seventh seal/seven thunders, according to the facts of the seventh seal, was

not to be broken to the public without the vindications of the seven thunders, which is a dynamic display of the power of God through the new Name and the third pull. These are exposed and are identified with the second school of thought. You must be reminded that most of them are defectors from the New York interpretation and interpreter. A typical example is in our backyard, he is the “Indian chief, Joshua, five star general, white eagle, son of man, possessor of the seventh dove, sword of the third pull in his hand”, which was marvellously exposed in “New Ministry of William Branham impersonated”. A defector from under that ministry, “the Exodus”, who contributed greatly to many irrefutable facts, is now trying to deny his testimony in various ways. That is an impossible task, because messages of “the chief”, songs written, symbols on his books of dove leading eagle, eagle capping the pyramid, and living witnesses who defected from that cult over a period of years, who yet testify to the truth. The greatest and most infallible proof of this impersonators claims is the fact that he at no time, having been exposed, ever denied these claims on his sermons or otherwise, but confirmed his ministry by another message in which he stated that the one with the unknown language is being ridiculed, typing himself as Christ suffering upon the Roman cross, all this brought about by his persecuters, Sanballat and Tobiah, used of the devil to destroy the temple he is commissioned to erect for Christ in the end time. However Sanballat is now being used by the “Indian Chief” to help restore the damages that was done to the temple. Some letters were written, and possibly Internet coverage, to deny the truth of which he freely testified. This is contrary to scriptures, for Sanballat nor Tobiah, at no time in Israel’s history, were ever used by Israel for the rebuilding of the temple. Such efforts are feeble and worthless, and I repeat, the evident proof is that he has not denied those offices, which he positively claims, but is powerless and has not produced what the seven thunders will produce when it is broken to the public.

 

As a believer or preacher, if you are caught in the web of this thunder net, produced by the second school of thought, which projects thousands of different misinterpretations and isms, you should give careful consideration to our work, with an unbiased and open mind, with prayers and fasting, because it involves your soul, your congregation, your family and loved ones, because it is an imaginary, mental delusion that has snared many good people, and imprisoned them behind ten inches bars of iron, caves and muggy dungeons, entitled “Message assemblies”. To follow that mirage that the crowds are following is to belong to the House of Hell. Truth is not judged by crowds. God’s truth was always with the minority in the past, and it is the same today. The minority belong to the first school of thought, Brother Branham’s school.

 

Any honest minister or lay member who study the simple approach of this subject, taking the quotations of Brother Branham on the thunders and proved what it is supposed to produce, and compared it with what the second school of thought has produced in twenty nine years, if he is an elect child of God, he must comprehend by the Holy Spirit that they did not even come close to what the thunders are supposed to produce, but went further away from the message, as Brother Branham had spoken, that you will wind yourself of the beaten track, do not interpret the seventh seal, don’t make any ism of the thunders, you will just get further away. That is exactly what took place. They are further away from the message today. They have destroyed the holiness message of Malachi 4, and their folly is being made manifest, since they are powerless and cannot produce what the thunders is supposed to produce. There are further expositions that are coming for such Janneses and Jambreses, impersonators of Moses’ ministry, who could not manifest the creative power of God. All these promises will be fulfilled by the elected Bride of Christ in its right time and season, about the time of the coming of the Lord and the translation of the Bride.

 

If you have misunderstood our approach to this subject, let it be known at this point, that we have targeted in all our writings, the system of Satan and the false anointed ones in the end time, whose aims, ambitions and purpose are to destroy the complete message of Malachi 4, as they have destroyed the holiness part of the message, and have perverted the promises of the seventh seal/seven thunders, spiritualising them, and explaining them away intellectually. This is in order to keep the end time Bride and the five-fold ministry powerless and earthbound.

 

We are conscious that many will be offended in our work and exposition of the second school of thought. Many were born into that conception, grew up, and are fully established for many years. This makes it almost incomprehensible to understand that such a big movement is a system of Satan and the false anointed ones, but we write with this hope and confidence that Christ’s sheep will hear His voice. The sense of perception will go to work, as with the woman of Samaria. They will compare the facts of the seventh seal with fictions of the second school of thought.

 

Though several names are included in our work, we love these people as human beings, and do not desire their destruction, but wish that all may come to repentance, even as the Lord desires. We believe that there are elected preachers and believers in every assembly of the second school of thought, but are imprisoned by the false anointed ones. We look with great hope, anticipation and desperation for the promised outpouring of the Holy Spirit, which will bring to pass the fulfilment of all the promises of the seven thunders, breaking the bars of the House of Hell, thus delivering all our brothers and sisters which makes up the Bride of our Lord Jesus Christ, to be translated by the real seven thunders and the dynamic power of the Holy Ghost, to be caught away in the rapture. “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh…for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance…” Joel 2:28-32.
