Rev. William M. Branham

1501 – “The Word says here, in Second Thessalonians, that there is three things. Notice. From the 13th to the 16th verse, there is three things that has to happen before the Lord Himself appears. Quickly now, so we can close. See? The first thing happens… Notice: a shout, a voice, a trumpet. Let’s read It now and see if that’s right. See? ‘For the Lord himself (16th verse) shall descend from heaven with a shout, and with the voice of the archangel, and…the trump of God:…’ Three things happens: A voice… A shout, a voice, a trumpet, has to happen before Jesus appears. Now, a shout… Jesus does all three of them when He’s descending. A shout, what is the shout? It’s the Message going forth, first, the living Bread of Life bringing forth the Bride.”

Noah get a hold of… Oh, on down, on down to Abraham, and down as they come. There’ll be a great shaking and awakening when the Son of God comes. We’ll stand in His likeness at that day.”

The miracle fishing

If you look at the Tent Vision, our brother Branham was above the congregation that was present there.

He was not sitting or standing with his feet on the ground, or on the land or on cement, but was in the air looking from where the congregation is to the pulpit; and he saw, at his left hand, a little place, where great things were happening there. But if he had been in the pulpit, it would have been at his right hand. But that was his left, because he was over there, looking from there to here. But that was the right hand of the one who had the ministry of preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom and the ministry with which the revival of the Last Day would come.

And the revival or awakening of the Last Day is promised to be carried out through the seven thunders of Revelation, chapter 10.

It says that the Thunders will awaken the Bride, it says that the Thunders will bring a revival to the Bride, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Thunders pertain to the Age of the Cornerstone and Dispensation of the Kingdom, to sound under the preaching of the Gospel of the Kingdom.

And what do the Thunders contain? What revelation do the Thunders bring to us for the Last Day? Well, it brings us the revelation of the Second Coming of Christ, in the preaching of the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Just as the preaching of the Message of the Gospel of Grace brings us the revelation of the First Coming of Christ and His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross.

Now we can see how it is that the fishing of the Last Day will come, how it is that this revival promised for the Last Day will come, for the territory where that stage of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ corresponds; and from there it will spread to the entire world.

The crucifixion and death of Christ

Someday the Coming of the Lord will become a reality, the Coming of the Lord will be opened to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and that will be in the fulfillment of the Great Tent Cathedral, that is where that mystery of the Seventh Seal will be opened. And that is where there will be a very great revival, a very great awakening, a very great manifestation of Christ in the midst of His Church; that stage called: the Third Pull.

For that time, if He has not finished in the beginning of the Tent Vision when He appears, at some point later on, Christ will finish His Work of Intercession in Heaven as High Priest, He will come out of the Throne of Intercession, take the Title Deed and open it in Heaven. That Title Deed in Heaven is the Book sealed with seven Seals.

That is because Christ will have already completed His Church with all those written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life. And then, He will do His Reclaiming Work, He will bring the dead in Christ who are in Paradise, He will pass through Paradise, He will bring them, He will resurrect them in eternal and glorified and young bodies; and He will transform the believers who are alive. And then we will be in the physical likeness of Christ, with glorified and eternal bodies, immortal and young for all eternity.

Those people, as well as those who are in Paradise will receive the Coming of the Lord in Paradise, to come to Earth and take physical and eternal bodies; the believers in Christ will see Christ coming for His Church, they will see the resurrected ones in eternal bodies, and the living in Christ will be transformed. And that will be the largest meeting that has been carried out, that has been carried out of believers in Christ; because those of past ages will come to our time to meet with the believers in Christ who are going to be transformed; and when we see them, we will be transformed.

For that time, there will be a very great manifestation of God’s presence through Christ. And the Jews, when they see that, will say: “This is the one we are waiting for!” But He’s not coming for them. He’s coming for His Church-Bride, to transform her and take her with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

He comes for them a little later; the Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached to the Jews at a certain time.

After that manifestation or in the midst of that manifestation everything will be intertwined. And during the time of the ministry of the Two Olive Trees to the Jews, there they will receive the Gospel of the Kingdom, 144,000 (12,000 from each tribe); for those are the chosen ones of Israel.

In addition to the other people, the chosen ones are 144,000 (12,000 from each tribe); as in the midst of Christianity are the elect, represented in the wise virgins, and then the rest, represented in the foolish virgins or fatuous virgins.

Being virgins, they are believers who also love God, but do not belong to the wise virgins; and so it will be with Israel.

The wise virgins for Israel would be the 144,000; and the foolish virgins, the rest of the people.

The wise virgins are those who receive Christ in His Coming, who woke up with the midnight cry (of Matthew, chapter 25, verse 1 to 13). And the Bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with Him to the Marriage, and the door was shut. Then, the other virgins, when they came to knock at the door, it was already shut; they were cast out into the outside darkness, which is the great tribulation.

How will it come, when will it come and all those details, is still a mystery, which will be opened in the time of the Third Pull or time of the fulfillment of the Tent Vision. But we are only briefly speaking of that; but when that mystery is opened, you will see clearly all that mystery of the Seventh Seal; and you will also see the crucifixion more clearly, that is, the second crucifixion, which will not be literal.

Therefore, onward serving Christ, working on His Work in the spiritual field and in the physical field too. And when we see the greatest sign, or two great signs: the squeeze and the Tent Vision fulfilled, remember, that will be the sign to receive the faith to be transformed and raptured, to be taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

There the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will enter the revival, the greatest spiritual awakening in her history; to such a degree that she will be transformed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Prepare yourself to come and meet your God

Remember that in the Tent Vision the Reverend William Branham was taken, and the Angel who spoke to him was with him; and then he says he saw the Pillar of Fire that came down to the place of the little room. The Pillar of Fire is Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant.

In other words, He comes down to that stage and He will be the one who will perform all those wonders. It will be Christ coming to His Church in a Cloud, in the Pillar of Fire, God in the Pillar of Fire visiting His Church, to give her the faith to be transformed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

Remember, the Thunders will reveal to the Church the mystery of His Coming, the mystery of the Seventh Seal; and will give her a revival, an awakening. And the Seven Thunders are the Voice of Christ, the Mighty Angel that descends from Heaven with the little Book open in His hand, crying as when a lion roars, and seven thunders speaking their voices; Christ speaking with the Voice of a Lion, crying, roaring as when a lion roars, and Seven Thunders speaking their Voices.

The Reverend William Branham says that the Seven Thunders contain the mystery of the Seventh Seal; therefore, with the revelation of the mystery of the Seventh Seal that the seven voices of the Mighty Angel, of Christ, will give us the faith to be transformed, will reveal to us the mystery of His Second Coming, the mystery of His visit for His meeting with His Church in the Last Day.

We need to know those mysteries which will be revealed in the Third Pull (called by Reverend William Branham), in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision.
