THE SEVEN THUNDERS AND THE SEVENTH SEAL, PART 3.

WHAT THE PROPHET SAID ABOUT THEM

PART 3

THE SEVENTH SEAL. JEFF. IN. 63-03-24E

559-3. (261).   [The prophet originally had the tape stopped here. He put in a different ending, which he recorded on Monday morning, which begins at paragraph 376--Ed.] 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... Now, I don't know what... I KNOW THE NEXT STEP THERE, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT, HOW TO INTERPRET THAT. It won't be long. I'VE GOT WROTE DOWN HERE WHEN IT HAPPENED, if you can see here, "STOP! GO NO FURTHER THAN THIS RIGHT HERE."

HAVE YOU GOT WHAT THE PROPHET REVEALED IN THE ABOVE QUOTES? If you missed it, read it again and again. He started by saying:

557-3. (245). NOW, NONE OF US KNOW; BUT I'M GOING TO TELL YOU MY REVELATION OF IT .

THEN HE WENT ON FURTHER TO SAY:

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...

IF YOU MISSED WHAT IS SAID HERE, DO NOT BLAME ANYBODY FOR PERSISTING IN YOUR WILLFUL IGNORANCE. LET US GO ON TO PICK WHAT HE SAID AFTER THAT IN OTHER MESSAGES:

CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY. JEFF. IN. V3 N7, 63 – 07 - 28

17-1   Now, God had A PURPOSE AND A HIDDEN MYSTERY. And that's what I want to speak on to the church this morning: THE HIDDEN MYSTERY OF GOD THAT HE HAD IN HIS MIND BEFORE THE WORLD EVER BEGAN and how that it's unfolded itself right down to this present hour that we're living. See? Then you will understand clearly then (You see?) on, I believe, what is being done.

GOD'S GREAT MYSTERY OF HOW... It's a secret. He kept it a secret. NOBODY KNOWED NOTHING ABOUT IT; EVEN THE ANGELS DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT. See? HE DIDN'T REVEAL IT. That's the reason UNDER OUR SEVENTH MYSTERY, WHEN THE SEVENTH SEAL WAS OPENED, THERE WAS SILENCE.

CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY. JEFF. IN. V3 N7, 63 – 07 - 28

17-3   Jesus, WHEN HE WAS ON EARTH, THEY WANTED TO KNOW WHEN HE WOULD COME. He said, "It's not... 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.

HOW He will come. WHEN He will come: IN TYPES & SHADOWS

HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES:

1. IN ENOCH: The Rapture will occur in the 7TH CHURCH AGE, before Judgement strikes the Earth.

2. IN REBECCA: going to meet Isaac in the field BETWEEN HER HOME and ISAAC’S HOME.

3. IN ABRAHAM: had to RESTORE CAPTIVATED BROTHER, LOT, FIRST before breaking bread and taking wine with Melchisedec.

4. IN ESTHER: She TOOK NOTHING ELSE to meet The King, ONLY WHAT THE CHAMBERLAIN APPOINTED.

5. IN RUTH: She had to be REDEEMED FIRST, gleaned IN BOAZ FIELD ONLY, (kinsman’s field), THEN GOT MARRIED.

6. IN THE 5 WISE VIRGINS: They were sure THEY HAD LAMPS, (WORD), and OIL (HOLY GHOST) in their vessels. These two requirements represent PASSPORT and VISA to cross from the EARTHLY KINGDOM to HEAVENLY KINGDOM.

7. MANNER OF HIS COMING: LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. The Prophet likens it to the story of ROMEO and JULIET. That is how much the Bible tells us about WHEN and HOW HE COMES.

DOOR IN A DOOR. TUCSON AZ. 63 – 02 - 23

E-61   Oh, sure, we want Jesus. Certainly. We think we got Him, and all like that. But I wonder if that rapture could pass, and we'd be left alone one day, then wonder where it's all at--if it'd come by real secretly, you know. AND THAT'S WHAT IT'S COMING, LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. You'll... Ninety-nine out of every half-a-million, every million, will never know the rapture takes place. It'll be gone and they won't even know nothing about it. Jesus said so. So that makes it right. See? Certainly. IT'LL COME LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT and be stoled away.

Like that book i read one time. What was that guy? ROMEO and JULIET or something like that. See? HE COME AND GOT HER AT NIGHT-TIME. That's the way Jesus does. When the world's just lolling in sleep like the Bible said, THE LAODICEAN AGE, HE'LL SLIP IN AND GET THAT BRIDE.

DOOR IN A DOOR. TUCSON AZ. 63 – 02 - 23

E-62   Then all them that's resurrected, down through them ages, have been down the ages, they'll all go to heaven in the bride. Then the judgments ‘ll come. The church ‘ll say, "Well, wait a minute. I thought there was supposed to be a bride, a coming of the Lord and a bride." It's been gone for a long time. You knew nothing about it. IT COMES SECRETLY. Why, there wasn't, I guess, one-third of the whole Jewish race ever knowed that Jesus Christ was on earth. They might've heard of SOME FANATIC DOWN ALONG THERE SOMEWHERE, but they didn't pay any attention to it, just going on. "He came to His own, and His own received Him not."

THE THIRD SEAL, JEFF. IN. WEDNESDAY 63 - 03 - 20

238-4 (63)   Now, there's where I believe even... Now, IT DIDN'T SAY HE'D SECRETLY COME, but THE RAPTURE WILL BE A SECRET. So IF THAT WAS SO SECRET WHEN HE COME, how much more will THE RAPTURE BE UNKNOWN. SEE? They want to... Directly they'll say, "Well, I thought we were supposed to have rapture and all this judgment upon the earth."

He said, "IT'S ALREADY TAKEN PLACE, and YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT." See?

IT'LL BE SO JUST LIKE A THIEF AT THE NIGHT. Like a book I read one time... What is that called? "ROMEO and JULIET," is that what it was, or something. He let... They got the ladder up the side the house some way I for... (It's been a long time ago.) And HE COME, GOT TO GET HER OUT AT NIGHT TIME.

THE THIRD SEAL, JEFF. IN. WEDNESDAY 63 - 03 - 20

239-1 (67)   Now, THAT'S THE WAY IT'LL TAKE PLACE, and it'll be gone... Not that they'll have--send down a bunch of Angels down with some spades and dig up the graves. The Bible said we'll be changed before even you could bat your eye, just a twinkle. IT'LL ALL BE OVER THAT QUICK. Just say, "Somebody disappeared."

LORD JUST ONCE MORE. HOT SPRINGS AR. V20 N10, FRIDAY 63 – 06 - 28A

203.  God, take all the world out of me. Give me faith, O Lord, for a rapture. For, THERE WILL BE TWO IN THE BED, and ONE WILL BE TAKEN, ONE LEFT. TWO WILL BE IN THE AUTOMOBILE SEAT, and ONE WILL BE TAKEN and the OTHER ONE BE LEFT. It's going to happen in a moment.

You say, "BROTHER BRANHAM, WHEN WILL IT BE?"

You might criticize this. If it's all right to say it? [Minister says, "Go ahead and say it, brother."-Ed.] Let me drop a little something here. One day you're going to find out. You're going to say there, "OH, I BEEN TAUGHT THAT THERE'S THIS, THAT, and THE OTHER, GOING TO HAPPEN BEFORE THE LORD COMES. There'll be a great tribulation period, and we'll go through it." See, see?

LORD JUST ONCE MORE. HOT SPRINGS AR. V20 N10, FRIDAY 63 – 06 - 28A

206   You know, one time Jesus was asked a question. He said, "Why does the scribes say that Elias must first come?"

And Jesus said, "I say unto you, HE'S ALREADY COME AND YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT."

One of these days you're going to say, "WELL, I THOUGHT the Church was going, had to do this, that, and the other. I THOUGHT there'd be a rapture. I THOUGHT..."

SEE, IT'LL BE A SECRET CATCHING AWAY. If He took one here in Hot Springs, and one somewhere else, and one down there, one there, will make up literally millions of those that come up out of the ground. And there's at least five hundred people, every day missed in the world, and we don't even know where they went to. See, THE RAPTURE'S GOING TO MAKE UP OF ALL THOSE WHO SLEEP IN THE DUST OF THE EARTH, THAT'S RIGHT WITH GOD.

They'll say, "WELL, I THOUGHT A RAPTURE'S TAKE PLACE."

"IT'S ALREADY PASSED, and YOU KNEW IT NOT. YOU'RE LEFT." See?

"Well, everything's going..." Yes, sir.

IT'S A SECRET COMING, THE RAPTURE IS, COMES TO STEAL AWAY. Like that book I read that time of (What was it?), JULIET and ROMEO. He come at night-time, WHEN THE PEOPLE WERE SLEEPING IN WORLDLINESS, and THE CHURCH ALL IN WORLDLINESS. And ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE CRY COME, and AWAY THEY WENT.

1161- QUESTION -396: DO YOU BELIEVE THAT SOMETIMES THE LITTLE LIVING BRIDE WILL GATHER SOMEWHERE TOGETHER AND HAVE ALL THINGS IN COMMON, AS DID THE FIRST BRIDE, PERHAPS JUST BEFORE THE COMING OF THE LORD JESUS IN THE CLOUDS?

Now, they asked me did I believe it. I can't prove it by the Scriptures, but perhaps there will come a time, maybe, I don't know. There may be just... You see? If it would, it would give identification of His closeness at hand, being so... He said, "BUT HE COMES LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT." See? He comes like that book I read ON ROMEO and JULIET, HE COMES AND TAKES AWAY HIS BRIDE AT NIGHT. She's caught away in a moment in a twinkling of an eye. See?

And it's very doubtful whether it'll be that way, because the Bible said, "THERE'LL BE TWO IN A BED; I'LL TAKE ONE and LEAVE ONE; and TWO IN THE FIELD, and I'LL TAKE ONE and LEAVE ONE." See? So they probably... Across the world, they won't be gathered in one place to have things in common. But little groups of them will be scattered all over the earth.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. JEFF. IN. COD. SUNDAY, 64 – 08 - 30E

1162-81. I believe, maybe if the Lord permits, this is a little group of it. Maybe another little group in Asia, one down in Germany, one down somewhere else. When I seen a vision of the Bride the other night, they was made up from the international. See?

So the Bride won't be gathered from one place; It'll be gathered from all over the world. And that exactly vindicates with the Word, and never has the Word been wrong. And to this time, neither has the vision ever been wrong, because it's been according to the Word.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. JEFF. IN. COD. SUNDAY, 64 – 08 - 30E

1161-Q-395. HAVE THE SEVEN THUNDERS WHICH EQUAL 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. They was to reveal... 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." And the seventh angel is a messenger of the seventh church age. See?

NOW GO TO THE 7TH SEAL: HERE IS WHERE YOU FIND WHAT WAS SAID ABOUT THEM

... 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?

THE SEVENTH SEAL. JEFF. IN. 63-03-24E

557-3. (245). 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 am 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?

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.

THE SEVENTH SEAL. JEFF. IN. 63-03-24E

557-5. (249). NOW, WHY? Let us prove it. WHY? IT IS THE SECRET THAT NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT. John was forbidding to write about it, even, 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...

Now, notice, when the seven angels come forth to sound their trumpets, there was one thunder. When Israel was gathered, there was a trumpet. When time shall be no more, the last trumpet... One thunder, 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 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.[Pg. 503, Para. 253] 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.

... THE SEVENTH SEAL. JEFF. IN. 63-03-24E

558-2 {255}. Seven, God's perfect number, Seven [Brother Branham knocks six 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.

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 can see these signs coming up. See? IF SATAN COULD GET A HOLD OF IT...

THE SEVENTH SEAL. JEFF. IN. 63-03-24E

... 558-4. (258). If you want something to happen... Now, you'll have to take my word for this. IF I'M PLANNING ON DOING SOMETHING, I KNOW BETTER THAN TO TELL ANYBODY ABOUT IT. Not that that person will tell it, BUT SATAN WILL HEAR IT. See? HE [SATAN], CAN'T GET IT IN MY HEART THERE, AS LONG AS GOD'S GOT IT CLOSED UP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, so IT'S BETWEEN ME AND GOD. See? HE [SATAN], DON'T KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT UNTIL YOU SPEAK IT, THEN HE HEARS IT. And I'LL TRY DO A CERTAIN, CERTAIN THING, AND WATCH THE DEVIL CUT OFF EVERY WHEEL HE CAN TO GET THERE (SEE?), TO BEAT ME TO IT. But IF I CAN GET THE REVELATION FROM GOD AND JUST DON'T SAY NOTHING ABOUT IT, then it's different. 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 PULLHE JUST KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT IT. See? HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND IT.

 NOW CONTINUE WITH WHAT HIS REVELATION OF IT IS IN THIS SEAL [THE 7TH SEAL]:

... 563-5. (299). And just then He picked me up. And He took me up and set me way up high to where a meeting was going on, looked like a tent or a cathedral of some sort. And I looked, and there was a little box-like, little place over in the side. And I seen that Light was talking to somebody above me, that Light that you see there on the picture. It whirled away from me, like that, and went over to that tent, and said, "I'll meet you there." And said, "THIS WILL BE THE THIRD PULL, and YOU WON'T TELL IT TO NOBODY.”

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.

CAN YOU SEE THE CONNECTION HE MADE BETWEEN THE SEVEN THUNDERS, THE THIRD PULL, THE COMING OF THE LORD AND THE SILENCE OF THE SEVENTH SEAL?
