This poor man cried, and the LORD heard [him], and saved him out of all his troubles.

The Seven Thunders

Posted: 28 January 2013


The Seven Thunders
Following our Friday Bible Study where we take one of Brother Branham’s tape. We  listened and commented on the quotes and paragraphs. At the same time, we crossed reference with some of the revelations within the search of the message database. For those who are not able to install their own message table with the ability to search the database, we suggest that you use the VOGR websearch. Follow this link :-

This way we are able to clarify certain misunderstandings that are circulating in various places particularly those preachers who use the internet as their platform. Not everything the internet preachers said are correct and not all are incorrect. There are some truths expounded but there are also some misleading statements particularly when they themselves do not cross-check with the message or the bible.

We must also acknowledge that this message dovetailed with the bible. Now many will claim this is an untrue statement but here is what he said :-

  578-2  {407}    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--kind of his head back, and his great sharp wings, and how he flew right to me. Now, that is this Seventh Seal. It's still is a notable thing. And we are... We don't know what it is as yet, because it's not permitted to be broken.

But now, each one of you in the meeting has noticed that what a meeting it's been. Everybody just seemed to be right on the end of their seat, and everybody standing around here at one and two o'clock in the afternoon waiting for the doors to open to get up here in the front, standing around the walls, cramped limbs, and everything. What is it? It's been the Holy Spirit sending down these messengers, and they have been revealing it to us. And then notice how it's dovetailed with the Word, exactly.

  578-4  {410}    And then to let you all know that this is truth, He foretold it about--about two months now, or more, before it ever happened, that when I went west, not knowing it, come back here with the interpretation as He has given it.
Now, remember, in the vision, He never told me one thing in the vision when He took me up. I was scared, afraid I was going to die, be killed in an explosion. You see, they could not do it. The interpretation come just as I had need of it; that was in the room. And I gave it out just as He give it.

Now, you see, friends, visions doesn't fail; they're always perfect; they're just exactly true.
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.

Many have also questioned the veracity of the Church Age Book, the worst kind of attack on this book is to ascribe it to be modified by Dr Lee Vayle or that Dr Lee Vayle inserted his own thoughts into the book. Now this is an unfounded accusation just because these internet preachers can’t find the original text meaning, that revelation was not given to them, thereby putting their own interpretations in question. Dr Lee Vayle was the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Spencerville, Ohio and I believed he has the qualifications even though today, no one has a record with even his close associate not understanding his own declaration that he has no Doctor of Divinity knowledge, He does speak better than any DDs on earth today. On the 26th Dec 1965, he reminded all present what Brother Branham told him, that it was the message that will fore run the Second Coming, and referred to the yet unpublished sermon "The Rapture" preached in Yuma which he said Brother Branham could not complete, that there was some issues, when he said the message was the Shout which will be followed with the Voice of the Archangel who would wake up the dead as Lazarus was called up from the dead by that Voice.

Brother Vayle then went on to say, Brother Branham told him the Seals was the masterpiece of his ministry and reminded all even at that point in time that should Jesus tarried for the next 50 years, that the message is still relevant and will accomplish what God Himself wants accomplished.

Another accusation about the Church Age Abridged Book was that certain doctrines were added much later and that the original Seven Church Ages as preached by Bro Branham in the 1960 did not contained such doctrine. Again, these people failed to realise that though the book was titled Seven Church Ages, it is not exclusively a paraphrase of the Seven Church Ages sermons but it is a complete exposition of the Revelations to the Seventh Angel of Revelation 3:14, the He who that hath the ear to hear….and thus to voice out the Word of God as He thundered, to His messenger or angel.  The Amen of the last church Age. In other words, the final authourity ordained in a man.

Revelation 3:14
(14)  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Bro Branham said this messenger is the same messenger as the angel of Rev 10:7. Let us read that to be clear as to this messenger’s role.

Revelation 10:7
(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.

It should be finished as He hath declared to His servants, the PROPHETS.  This is certainly self explanatory and it don’t need someone to vouch that it is true because it is the Word of God and the Word of God is Truth, Spirit and It is Life.

John 6:63
(63)  It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

John 17:17
(17)  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Further it is established in the same scripture that He will send us Elijah the prophet before the great and dreadful day of the Lord.  Based on this Brother Branham explained to us that “search the scriptures” that there was never in the writing of the Holy Writ was there ever a Gentile prophet. This Seventh Angel mentioned in the book of Revelation must be the same as the one identified in Malachi 4:5-6. It has to be in the Spirit of Elijah because it can’t be a gentile prophet in any other spirit. And the Spirit of Elijah is the Spirit of Christ as were all the Old Testament prophets.  How Moses esteeming the Reproach of Christ...yes, Christ in the old testament, greater riches than the treasures of Egypt. Seeing Him who is invisible.

Hebrews 11:26-27
(26)  Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
(27)  By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Paul was as the old testament prophet but he fulfilled the role of being the first church age messenger, The prophet Agabus mentioned in the book of Acts is more like the Jewish prophets of old.

  537-2  {84}    Now, notice, Israel--Israel believes only her prophets, and after they are vindicated. And nowhere through the church age, since in the early apostolic church, has the Protestant church ever had a prophet. Tell me who it was, and show it to me: never. They had in the early apostolic age one called Agabus which was a vindicated prophet. But in--when the Gentiles came in into inheritance of God, and Paul turned to the Gentiles after Peter (as we read last night) had received from the Lord that he was taking a--a people from the Gentiles for His Name, His Bride, then there never has been on the pages of history, a Gentile prophet.

  537-3  {85}    Now, you just go back through history and find out. Why? Exactly, it'd be contrary to the Word exactly. When the first went forth, it was a lion. That was prophet's Word. The next went forth was the work, sacrifice. The next come forth was the cunningness of--of man. But we are promised in the last day that to return to the church again for the benefit of straightening up all that has been misled--misundone--left undone, for it's predicted here that the seventh angel's message would finish the mysteries of God. And then we've went through it all. We see that it's perfectly in harmony with the Scriptures. That's the reason.

  537-4  {88}    Now, could you imagine when this person comes on the scene--when he does, remember, it'll be so humble and things till the churches will miss it a long ways. And could you imagine the churches, still under the tradition of the reformers, would ever receive a prophet from God who would be firmly against their teachings and organizations?
Now, there's only one person could fulfil that, only one spirit's ever been on earth that I know; it would either be... It would have to be Elijah in his time. And it was predicted that it would be, which is nothing but the Spirit of Christ. When Christ come, He was the fullness; He was a prophet; He was the--the God of the prophets. See, see?

Dear readers. Do you realise what this means? It means any Gentile, alive today, on earth who claimed themselves as the Revealer of God’s Word, or even Sounding of any Unwritten Word such as the Thunders  are deceived themselves. How then can they sound out the Word of God when Amos 3:7 says the Word of God comes to His prophets. Even Rev 10:7 says as He hath declared to His prophets. Do you realise that this discount their claims to be the successor of the seventh angel or that they are the eight angel? The devil must be having a field day in their deceived minds.  Yes that’s right. Any one who is Anti-Word is not inspired by God but the Devil. Plain bible declaration that no man can serve two masters. One tend to life and the other tend to death. That is why the first three riders, the white horse rider, the red horse rider and the black horse rider got no NAME. But that fourth horse rider has a Name and his (HIS-a man)  name is DEATH.  This is the time to caution my readers not to mix men’s doctrine with the Word of God. It is DEATH.

Revelation 6:8
(8)  And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

You, as a Christian is obligated to test every spirit who says they are from God. You have the Urim and Thummin today, the Word of God and the Message of a Prophet to  check any man’s claims of revelation.  My prophet said the Tree of Life is Jesus Christ. If anyman says otherwise, he is just but another deceived individual blowing his own trumpet.  Again, that is Death because a lie has no truth in it. It will lead you to hell because Hell followed with him.

Someone who claimed to be a man of God (and I use the capital for God not because I agree with this man, who claimed to be a man of God..) exposed himself to be another false claimant when he deny what is written in the Church Age Book and ascribed it to be from Brother Lee Vayle. Here, listen to the prophet said about the book, Brother Vayle and himself.

  49      Is Dr. Lee Vayle in this morning? I wanted to ask if Dr. Lee Vayle... Are you here, Brother Vayle? Raise up your hand if you are. Is he in the back? All right, thank you, Brother Roy. And I want you to be sure to check those notes, Brother Vayle. You're somewhere in the crowds back there that I can't see, or in the hall. We have to watch, can't let too many stand, the fire marshall won't let us do that, you see, and so we are. I want you to check my revelation on Serpent's Seed, to be injected into the first, Ephesian Church Age that he's writing, regrammarizing it for me. Beautifully done! And I want you to check that and let somebody say something against the Serpent's Seed now (whether it was right, or not)! So the Lord just gave it to me yesterday, see. Oh, it's beyond! How I get a message, I'll be going along and Something strikes me. Then... And if I know it's God, I'll take it over and find it in the Scripture. Then I have... It's never failed, but, from Genesis to Revelation, run true, no matter what people think about It. And it's been more so than ever since those Seven Seals. See, that did it that time. So the Lord bless you now as we study. Now in respects to the Word..

So my title is the Seven Thunders. What about it, you may ask. Well, it is simply this:- That the seven thunders are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals.

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.

And to the individual who claimed this was inserted by Brother Lee Vayle, you will find this statement exactly repeated in a post seal sermon, in 1964. The Unveiling of God which we heard two or three Fridays ago.

  273      Everyone has always come to me, said, "Brother Branham, them seven thunders that the voice thundered, and He said, 'Write It not, see, but close It up,'" said, "that'll be seven thunders that will be revealed in the last days, see, seven thunders that'll tell us?" Now, don't that sound real good? See? But watch what you're talking about when you say that.
He said, "See that you write It not." See? These seven thunders utter their voices, see, and He said, "Don't write that, see, but It's to be sealed up in the Book until the last days."
  274      Now someone has been, many has been saying to me, and theologians said, "Brother Branham, if the Lord God..." Said, "If--if... With your experience, that the Lord has given you for His people," humbly saying this, said, "you would be eligible to write a--a Bible yourself, your Word, if God has manifested."
275    I said "That might be true." See, he was trying to catch me. See? And I said, "But, you see, I couldn't do that."
He said, "Why couldn't you? You have all the qualifications."
276    I said, "But, you look, one word cannot be added or taken away." See?
277    And he said, "Well, then, them seven thunders, you see," said, "wouldn't them seven thunders blasting out, won't that be a Revelation be give to some man?"
278    I said, "No, sir, it would be adding something to It or taking Something from It."
279    It's all revealed in There, and the Seven Seals opened up the revelation of what That was. That's what it was. See, it's still in the Word. You see, you can't get out of that Word. It won't leave the Word. And God's Spirit will never leave that Word. It'll stay right with the Word; blinding some, and open the eyes of others. It'll always do that.
  280      "Ye are written epistles, read of all man." Or, you are... I translate That, turn around this a way, see, just turn It around, "You are epistles that has been written," 'cause you can't add nothing to It, "that's read of all man; manifested Word of God," in other words.
And Peter and John, to show it, when they went up there, they perceived they were ignorant and unlearned, they had no education, but they taken notice they had been with Jesus. See? They were ignorant and unlearned, but they were written epistles, see, read that they had been with Jesus. Cause, Jesus was manifesting Himself through them, Christ veiled in their flesh; manifested, made alive.

Now dear readers, I trust you understand why Brother Branham preached the Unveiling of God. It is the Mighty God unveiled by the Word to us to achieve the three fold purpose as preached in Christ is the mystery of God revealed.

Christ is the Mystery of God Revealed 63=0728,
First, to express Hisself completely, God in Christ.

155    Second, to have the pre-eminences, by this, in His Church, which is His Body, the Bride, till He could have the preeminence to express Himself through them. All right.

156    And, thirdly, to restore the Kingdom to its rightly position, that fell by sin by the first Adam, back to where He walked in the cool of the evening, with His people, talked with them, fellowship with them.

In summary, I repeat what he said. The Seven Seals opened up the Revelation of what the Seven Thunders were. They are the revelations contained in the Seven Seals……..And in the unveiling of God sermon, what was he doing……. unveiling Christ – the mystery of God revealed – to us today. It is still fresh as the day it was given because it is the same Shekinah glory surrounding it. If your manna is not fresh, it is that you are not inside the Shekinah Glory . Mine what a revelation to me. The reason why some of the manna is not fresh to some today is because they are not placing it inside the Shekinah Glory.  Flesh and blood has not revealed this to you but my Father in heaven has revealed this to you said Jesus to Peter,  when he confessed that Jesus was the Messiah, the Son of the Living God. Today, that same Son is dwelling in His Bride…again unveiling the mystery of the Gentile Bride.

  34-4    Notice, now the Laodicean church: the messenger will finish of the Laodicean... The seventh angel will finish all of the mysteries that's been lost in the battles before for the truth.

Some internet preachers claimed that God has given them more revelations than Brother Branham had,  not realising what they are in fact saying………They are denying that he was the last messenger, and that he has to be in the Spirit of Elijah for there are no record of ………. Gentile prophets……and I leave you to say the last word……. of who they are not.
Our doctrine is based on the 4 cornerstone of the foundations of God's great Masterpiece. Faith, Love, Grace and Perfection....Abraham, Isaac, Israel and Joseph. From which comes the headstone to be capped by the Capstone Ministry.
