288 Now look here. When these prophets are prophesying there, they…If any man mistreats them, harms them: “fire proceeds from their mouth,” Holy Ghost Fire, the Word. The Word is God. Word is Fire. Word is the Spirit. See? “Proceeds from their mouth.”
289 Look at Moses. Let’s see what come from his mouth. They, Israel, got to, way they were doing there, the—the…I mean, Egypt, they were mistreating these Jews. Moses…Well, they wouldn’t let them go. Pharaoh wouldn’t. God put the words in Moses’ mouth. See, it’s God’s thoughts going into Moses’ heart; he goes over now to express it, then it becomes the Word. Stretched his hand forth, said, “Let there be flies,” and here come flies. Look here.
And if any man hurts them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemy:…
290 See? There it is. They can speak what they want to, and there it happens. Amen!
…and if any man…hurt them, they must in this manner be killed.
291 Brother, God rides on the scene here!
They have power to—power to shut the heavens, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy:…
292 Elijah, he knows how to do it; he’s done it before. Amen! Moses knows how to do it; he’s done it before. That’s the reason they was kept back. Now…Amen!
293 I could say something awful good right here, but I better—better hold it until tomorrow night. See? All right.
…and have power over the waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with…plagues, as oft as they will.
294 What is it? What can bring these things but the Word? They can do nature any way they want to. Here it is. They’re the one who brings on this Sixth Seal. They uncover and open it up. It’s the Power of God, to interrupt nature. See, the Sixth Seal is completely an interruption of nature. Do you get it now? There is your Seal. Who does it? It’s the prophets, the other side of the Rapture. With the Power of God, the Word of God, they just condemn nature. They can send earthquakes, turn the moon into blood, the sun can go down, or anything, at their command. Amen!
THE WORKS OF THE CHURCH OF
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST

Therefore, the position of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of Messiah will be the highest position that can be reached in the Kingdom of the Messiah.
That is the Family of Christ, those that He calls “my brethren”; those are the elect of God or predestined of God, the children of light, who would receive Him as Savior through the different stages of His Church; and on the Last Day they would see His manifestation as Son of Man in the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ, and then they will see it in the Coming of the Lord to His Church to give us the faith to be transformed and taken with Him to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
Of which I can’t explain much now so that the imitators will not imitate the Program of God; that is why the whole mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man for the Last Day hasn’t been made known openly. But the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ will receive that revelation, and above all, when it is in full fulfillment, and God working in the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, where the Reverend William Branham said that the Third Pull will be fulfilled, as it was told to him by the Angel that accompanied him.
There is the mystery of the Coming of Christ to His Church, there is the mystery of the Coming of the Son of Man, there is the mystery of the Thunders revealing the mystery of the Seventh Seal, the mystery of the Coming of the Lord to His Church.
Reverend William Branham said that when… that the Coming of the Lord and the resurrection of the dead believers in Christ will be in a time when there will be many consecutive earthquakes; the earth will be shaking, therefore there will be confusion; and also the earthquake of the resurrection will come, as there was an earthquake when Christ was resurrected, and also when the believers who had died were raised; when they were resurrected, too.
Therefore, when we feel an earthquake we think of the resurrection. And why don’t we think of death? Because if anyone dies, he will be resurrected glorified right then and there; when the earthquake of resurrection occurs, which is linked to the earthquake that will occur in California. That earthquake is very important, because it is an earthquake that has also been prophesied in the Scripture and of which the Reverend William Branham spoke.
Reverend William Branham is the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ; and therefore, he said how the world condition was going to be, how the environmental situation was going to be, how the situation of earthquakes, tidal waves and all these things were going to be; of all these things he was speaking to us, of the things that would be happening, and of the things, the blessings that will come for the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and he spoke of a squeeze or persecution that comes for the Church-Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ, but in the midst of that squeeze Christ will be manifested in all His fullness in the midst of His Church. And that is the stage for the resurrection of the dead in Christ and the transformation of us who live. So when we see persecutions and squeeze, remember: The resurrection of the dead in Christ and our transformation is near.
(…) Therefore, we know that there will come a time of squeeze or persecution, but be courageous; because that will be a sign that we will be close to our transformation. In other words, it will be under a time of squeeze that the resurrection will occur, and that we will be transformed and taken with Christ to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
Remember that on the Day of Pentecost they were filled with the Holy Spirit and they were also days of squeeze, and very strong persecutions. The disciples were also frightened, with the doors closed, but waiting for the Coming of the Holy Spirit, the Coming of the Lord in Holy Spirit to continue His works through His Church.
And He still continues to carry out His works in the midst of His Church, until a time will come when there will be a manifestation in all His fullness in the midst of His Church, at the time of the fulfillment of the Tent Vision, where what the Reverend William Branham called the Third Pull will be fulfilled.
