MALACHI 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and

dreadful dayof the LORD:

6  And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their

FATHERS, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

I will restore, saith the Lord." So help me, I make this prophecy. Before the coming of the Lord, the true APOSTOLIC FAITH, the true APOSTOLIC TEACHING, the true BIBLE SPIRIT, the true, It's on Its road now, trying to eat Its way up, grow out again.


"And, behold, in the last days I'll send to you the Elijah, the prophet, and he'll change the thoughts of the people, turn the hearts of the children back to the APOSTOLIC TEACHING of the BIBLE." "And it shall be Light about the evening time."


The APOSTOLIC teaching we received in the Message starts with the baptism in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we understand that the baptism in the name of Father, Son and Holy Ghost is a false teaching. We also know that God is one Person, and not two or three. But we should also know that we cannot continue in the Message with those basic doctrines, as Hebrews 6:1-6 tells us, we must understand and believe ALL the APOSTOLIC teaching of the BIBLE, and the most important part is to understand the COMING of the LORD.

Apostolic faith means "the FAITH of the APOSTLES." That's what apostolic faith means, that you STAY with the BIBLE. Now, what's called apostolic faith today, MANY of them DON'T STAY with the BIBLE. But apostolic means the--the apostolic faith, the APOPSTOLIC faith OF THE BIBLE.

672-Q-156b  QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 61-1015M

Many Message ministers? Yes, just about ALL of them do NOT STAY with the apostolic teaching of the Bible, they completely disregard the Apostles explanation of the coming of the Lord, they prefer to teach their own creeds and dogmas. Let me quote some of those important apostolic Scriptures from the Bible, and everybody can see for themselves what the coming of the Lord is all about. Let us start with the Apostle Paul:

ROMANS 2:16  In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ

according to MY gospel.

3:4  God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou

mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art JUDGED.

8:23  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we

ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

14: 9  For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord

both of the DEAD and LIVING.

But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother?

for WE shall ALL stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

11  For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every

tongue shall confess to God.

12  So then EVERY ONE of US shall give account of himself to God.

O yes, the Lord is coming as the Judge, to judge all the gathered saints, the living and the dead of all ages, and confirm and reward each ONE of US as BLAMELESS and faultless overcomer of sin and unbelief. Nobody can fail in this Judgment of the righteous saints, it is the ADOPTION ceremony for each saint on that day of our full redemption, and the redemption of our bodies, as Romans 8:23 above explains. The Apostle Paul continues:

CORINTHIANS 1:7  So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming

of our Lord Jesus Christ:

8  Who shall also CONFIRM  you unto the end, that ye may be BLAMELESS in

the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

4:3  But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's

judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.

4  For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth

me is the Lord.

Behind the curtain of time, Brother Branham was told that at the coming of the Lord he and his converts will be judged, and all will be accepted. Then Brother Branham asked if Paul will be judged, and here Paul confirms it.

11:32  But when WE ARE judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should

not be condemned with the world.

13:12  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know

in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

15:22  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

23  But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they

that are Christ's at HIS COMING.

15:51  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound,

and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

II CORINTHIANS 1:14  As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your

rejoicing, even as ye also are ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.

5:9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be ACCEPTED of him.

10  For WE must ALL appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive

the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Can Paul, the chiefest of the APOSTOLIC fathers say all over the Bible that WE ALL must appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ, if it is NOT so? Certainly not! To deny that means to deny the true meaning of Malachi 4:6, and the faith which was once delivered to the saints. That is not contending for it, but speaking against it.

11:2  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband,

that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

EPHESIANS 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,

that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one ALL

things in Christ, both which are in HEAVEN, and which are on EARTH; even in him:

13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:

in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased

possession, unto the praise of his glory.

4:30  And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

According to these Scriptures, and others also, the day of Redemption cannot take place till the LAST ONE has received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and is sealed by that UNTO the day of our Redemption. The "purchased possession" is all the Bride of all ages, all who are written in the Lamb's Book of Life, from Adam to the last one. That is the dead saints who are in Heaven, and us the living ones on earth, we all will be gathered on that day.

PHILIPPIANS 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in HEAVEN,

and things in EARTH, and things UNDER the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

3:20  For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour,

the Lord Jesus Christ:

21  Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body,

according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

COLOSSIANS 1:22  In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and

unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

All the messengers of the 7 church ages will present their part of the Bride unblameable and unreproveable and holy as a chaste virgin to Christ, when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess of all the living and the dead saints that our lovely Jesus is our Lord, on that great day of redemption up in glory where we will all meet Him. This is real Malachi 4:6 teaching, the evidence is right here before us to see, for everybody who can read.

3:4  When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 

24  Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the REWARD of the inheritance: for ye serve

the Lord Christ.

I THESSALONIANS 2:19  For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not

even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

20  For ye are our glory and joy.    (We will be Brother Branham's glory and joy)

3:13  To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God,

even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with ALL his saints.

4:16  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of

the archangel, and with the TRUMP of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in 

the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

All over the world, most of the Message followers interpret these 2 verses to mean that the next event is that the dead in Christ rise from the dead, and appear to the living saints, and they be changed and together they go in the rapture to meet the Lord in the air on the way to the Wedding supper. That is a deadly shortcut which contradicts just about every other Scripture which explain the coming of the Lord. They outright deny the day of Redemption, and the Judgment of the righteous saints which takes place BEFORE the resurrection of the dead. The Trump of God is the one in Revelation 4:1, it will summons us the living saints up to the Throne to join the dead saints up there, to witness the second coming of Jesus to fully redeem us, BEFORE the resurrection.

II THESSALONIANS 2:1  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our

Lord Jesus Christ, and by OUR gathering together unto him,

I TIMOTHY 6:14  That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable,

until the appearing of our Lord JesusChrist:

15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the

King of kings, and Lord of lords;

II TIMOTHY 4:1  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who

shall JUDGE the QUICK and the DEAD at his appearing and his kingdom;

8  Henceforth there is laid up for me a CROWN of righteousness, which the Lord, the

righteous JUDGE, shall give ME at that DAY: and not to me only, but unto ALL

them also that LOVE his appearing.

Precious words of the Apostle Paul, spoken under the inspiration of the infallible Holy Spirit, and almost totally disregarded by today's Message followers. We can receive the crown of righteousness from the Lord only, the righteous JUDGE, and no one else, and only on THAT DAY, and no other time. The ministers mention Malachi 4 and Hebrew 13:8 all the time, and some have it in big writing on their letter heads, and at the same time they speak ignorantly against it. We are supposed to earnestly contending to be at that event, but who is teaching it?

TITUS 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the

great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and

purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority.

Let no man despise thee.

HEBREWS 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

28  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that LOOK

for him shall he appear the second time WITHOUT SIN unto SALVATION.

Verse 27 is for the dead saints, and in verse 28 we see the living saints at this end-time who will come to the full stature of the perfect man, to be WITHOUT SIN in order to triumph over death and bypass the grave, but we will still appear with the dead saints at the same Judgment. This is only for those who LOOK for Him correctly.

10:30  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will

recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge HIS people.

36  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might

receive the promise.

37  For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.

12:22  But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God,

the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23  To the general ASSEMBLY and church of the firstborn, which are WRITTEN 

in heaven, and to God the Judge of ALL, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling,

that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

If you continue to insist that you are NOT going to any Judgment, then according to this Scripture, you cannot be written in Heaven in the Lamb's Book of Life, and you cannot be part of the church of the Firstborn, and you will certainly not be invited to the general assembly at the second coming of the Lord. You cannot be "a just man made perfect" by the Word of God, because you deny it, and you actually excommunicate yourself and all those who are in your care, if you are a minister. Yes, all ministers must give an account for their ministry.

13:17  Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch

for your souls, as they that must give ACCOUNT, that they may do it with joy, and

not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Therefore, it's the duty of we as pastors to see that this flock is fed and fed right, because God Almighty will require your blood at our hands. At the day of the judgment we'll answer for you. So seeing this great tremendous responsibility that's placed upon us, and God has given us people who love us and come to hear us, then we should spend our time constantly watching for your souls. And when the first little thing we see raising up that's not right, it's our duty to come to that person, because we are shepherds watching that sheep.

31  YOU.MUST.BE.BORN.AGAIN -- JEFF.IN --  61-1231M

God is determined to judge EVERY man by the Bible. And the Bible is the Word, and the Word is Christ. EVERYONE, every man will be judged by THAT.


I am not ashamed of what I have preached. And if EACH minister has to stand with his congregation and be judged, as I saw in the vision, I'm thankful for the Gospel that I have preached, because it's the same Gospel that Paul and them preached.


These are just three quotes of hundreds more which confirm that Brother Branham's preaching is exactly in line with the teaching of the apostolic fathers. Anybody who is really serious about their salvation can check that themselves, the Bible verses above are enough for anybody to see and understand what the true doctrine of the Apostles really is all about. Does your church believe and teach it like that? If not, what do you do about it?



We see on special occasions like in Mark 5:37, and on Mt. Transfiguration, and in the garden of Gethsemane that Jesus took Peter, James and John with Him as trusted witnesses. After the 14 letters written by Paul, which are included in the Bible, the epistles of James, Peter, John and Jude follow to witness to Paul's true doctrine.

JAMES 1:12  Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is TRIED, he

shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

5:7  Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman

waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive

the early and latter rain.

8  Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

9  Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the JUDGE

standeth before the door.

Next will be the latter rain, it will produce Brotherly Kindness, the Headstone, by the manifestation of another time like when Ananias and Sapphira were dealt with. It will eliminate any grudges within that end-time virgin, and make us ready to be blameless and faultless and holy when we will be received by the Judge.

ACTS 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it

is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of QUICK (living) and DEAD.

I PETER 1:7  That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold

that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour

and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

8  Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet

believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the SALVATION of your SOULS.

1:17  And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according

to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:

4:5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the QUICK and the DEAD.

6 For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they

might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.

We will give an account to Him who will judge the quick (living) and the dead saints, the living saints will join the dead saints before the Throne for this event. This is the Judgment of the faultless and blameless Bride who are recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life. At the White Throne judgment there will be no living ones, only the dead who are recorded in the Book of life, and the other 2 books as explained in Revelation 20:11-15.

4:13  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that,

when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

5: 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a CROWN

of glory that fadeth not away.

II PETER 1:16  For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto

you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

3:14  Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that

ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and BLAMELESS.

Yes, the Apostle Peter was an eyewitness on Mt. Transfiguration to watch a pre-figure of the second coming of the Lord in glory. He recognized Moses and Elijah as they appeared before the Lord, and Brother Branham told us time and again what Moses and Elijah represented. Here are two of the many quotes which clearly explain it:

Now, notice, when they seen Him standing there. And before that, there appeared to Him, Moses and Elijah. Watch that. What did Moses meant? Moses was--represented the ones that HAD DIED and was sleeping in the GRAVE, 'cause Moses died and was buried; nobody know where he was buried at. But he represented the ones that were asleep WHEN HE COME. And Elijah represented the translated ones, who DIDN'T have to DIE. See? There you are.

387  THE.UNCERTAIN.SOUND -- JEFF.IN -- 60-1218

Now look at transfiguration. We was, every one, represented there. There was the living saints that had raptured, there was Elijah standing there; and there stood Moses, the dead saints... Also, both of them had quickening Power. Whether one died, and the other didn't die, they're ALL THERE.


I JOHN 2:28  And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear,

we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

3:2  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but

we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

How could we fail at this Judgment if we are like Him? How could we fail in our Theophany body, which is the Word body in which we know all things? How could we fail dressed with a robe of fine linen, clean and white, which is the righteousness of saints? Nobody can fail in this Judgment of the righteous saints, but we have to be judged as blameless and faultless overcomer of unbelief by the same Judge Who sentenced Eve and Adam for NOT overcoming sin. The reason for this Judgment is to repeal and lift the curse of Genesis 3:17-19 off each one individually and personally. The resurrection of the dead in Christ cannot happen till we are all judged thus.

4:17  Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the

DAY of JUDGMENT: because as he is, so are we in this world.

II JOHN 1:10  If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine,

receive him NOT into your house, neither bid him God speed:

11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

At this time, if the few of us in this part of the world who believe this doctrine of the coming of the Lord would strictly enforce this Scripture, we would have to live like isolated hermits among the other Message followers. But in the latter rain when the Angel of the Lord will separate right from wrong, then it will be enforced by Him.

JUDE 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation,

it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly CONTEND

for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

It's the Acts of Christ in the Apostles, 'cause they were men. But they had the same faith. Now, the Spirit of Christ in the APOSTLES which what was doing that? Thirty-three years later, Jude said, "continually contend for that faith. I will give all diligence to write unto you to exhort you (to stir you up in other words), that you would earnestly (earnestly), contend, (keep holding out) for the same faith that was delivered to the saints." Does your church believe that? If it does, it's contending for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. Earnestly contend for the faith.


And bless all that's connected with the Tabernacle. And soon, Lord, if it be Your will, we expect a lovely, big tabernacle standing here on the corner where we can have a school, that we might school young ministers and send them to the four corners of the earth to earnestly contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints.

365-25  QUESTIONS.AND.ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 59-0628E

If that would have been done as Brother Branham wanted it to be done, then the worldwide Message would not be in such a confusion, and everybody would know these Scriptures above, and truly and earnestly contending for that same faith which was once delivered to the saints at Pentecost, and when the Apostles wrote all this.

"Earnestly contend for the Faith that was once delivered to the saints." Now we are promised, in Malachi 4, by the same system He always did, that we would be restored back to the original Faith. Oh, oh, my! Back to the original Seed, back to the Seed like it begin on the Day of Pentecost, back to the same Doctrine, Word by Word, power by power, Spirit, by the same thing just exactly like it was back in the beginning, through signs and wonders of the living Presence of Jesus Christ. After two thousand years, He is still alive. And He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.


JUDE 1:24  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present

you FAULTLESS before the presence of his glory with EXCEEDING JOY,

Jesus our High Priest will be our Judge and Kinsman Redeemer on that day. And after each messenger of the 7 church ages has presented his converts as a chased Virgin to Christ, then He will present all of us to the presence of the glory of God as faultless and blameless overcomer of sin and unbelief. The evidence of that is recorded in the Lamb's Book of life since before the foundation of the world, and when those last seven Seals will be loosed, the evidence of every individual's "lifestory" will be displayed on the canvas of the sky for all to see. Only our righteous deeds will show up on that day of our full redemption, Jesus died for the very purpose that all our confessed sins will be eliminated. As Jude says, it will produce exceeding joy to every one of us.



REVELATION 1:1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him,

to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent

and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

How different when John was caught up and seen Jesus, he was... Said, "Write it in a book what you have seen and give it back, send it back to the churches." Paul was forbidden to speak, and John was even asked to put it in a book so it would go all down through the ages. Oh, my. It's revealed NOW, to be revealed in this last days. It wasn't revealed in his day; it's revealed NOW as we GO ALONG.


The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to show unto the servants things

which must shortly come to pass;...

This is the last Book; and He sent His angels to signify It.

... sent to signify it by his angels unto his servant John:

My, how we could day--deal there a week. Notice. It's a Revelation, this Book is, to the servants of God for the last time, "when the time is at hand," when this Book will be revealed. Now, on over in the Book, we find out that the Book was closed, and shut up, and sealed until the end time.


Any understanding Message believer knows that Brother Branham is that angel-messenger, because he is the voice of the 7th angel who does signify the end-time Message to us, in words and in deeds, as also Revelation 10:7 says. The Lord Jesus reveals to us through John's writing that He is Almighty God, the supreme Authority.

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord,

which is, and which was, and which is to come, the ALMIGHTY.

14  His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were

as a flame of fire;

15  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as

the sound of many waters.

We are at the ending of the New Testament, and soon the Omega will come as the Judge as He is described in verse 14. We see that description of Him in the well known cloud picture, the head of our soon coming Kinsman Redeemer, wigged by Angel's wings as Brother Branham explains it. The white wig shows Him to be the Judge, the supreme Authority of Heaven and earth. In March 1963, those seven Angels came down together to anoint the Prophet to open up the mystery of the 7 written Seals of the Bible, to explain and forerun the second coming of the Lord. His second coming as the Judge will be TWOFOLD, it has a great and a dreadful part. First, He will personally fully redeem us, His faultless and spotless Bride, from the curse of Genesis 3:17-19. Then secondly, He will smite the earth with another curse because they did fall short to qualify to meet him at His coming.

And it's now one of the most horrible times for the unbelieve and sinner,that he has ever witnessed, because the doom time is close at hand. And it's the most blessed time for the believer, for his redemption is at hand. There is two factions in the earth tonight, the believer and unbeliever. The one the Lord is coming to receive, and the one the Lord is coming to condemn: at His coming, will bless one and will curse the other at His appearing.


And we are happy to see this hour approaching. It is the most glorious hour that the world has ever known for the believer, but for the rejecter, the most saddest time that could ever be... There couldn't find words in the alphabet, letters to make words, that could express the trouble and sorrow that lays ahead. And neither is there words could be formed from our alphabet to express blessings that lays ahead for the believer.


And we proved by the Bible it wasn't a sabbath day, neither a Sunday; it was the Lord's day. Is that right? And that's the day that He comes as a Judge, and will smite the earth with a curse. Is that right?

And I will send to you Elijah the prophet before the coming

of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:


In Revelation chapters 2 and 3, the Lord Jesus told John to write a short prophetic summary of the tests and the trials for each church age to the respective angel messenger of each of the 7 ages. The angel messenger of the first age was Paul, the chief Apostle of the apostolic teaching. In 1 Corinthians 3:10, he writes that like a wise masterbuilder, he has laid the foundation, and every one after him should take heed how he buildeth thereon. That was meant for every age, and each messenger tried to stay as close to Paul's teaching as possible.

REVELATION 2:7He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto

the churches; To HIM that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life,

which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

11  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;

HE that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

These two verses are for the overcomers of the first 2 church ages. We see that the  promise for a reward is for each and every individual overcomer, to "HIM or HE." There is a verse like these two for every one of the seven church ages. And notice, it says "I GIVE," which means the Lord Jesus Himself will hand it out personally to us individually on that glorious day of our full redemption. This is also most important Malachi 4:6 teaching of the Apostolic father John, dictated to him by the Lord Jesus Himself!! Can any sensible person afford to miss this?

Brother Branham said that every Message and every gathering produces 3 kinds of believers. There will be true believers, and make-believers and unbelievers. The true believers are the "overcomers," they will always be in the minority. The opposition at each church age was and still is the spirit of the respective satanic horse rider, and we can only overcome him by being led by the respective beast-like Holy Spirit anointing for each age.

52  We find here that God has always had overcomers. He's had overcomers in every age. There's always, every time, in every age that there's been on the earth, God has always had somebody He could put His hands on, as a witness in the earth. He's never been without a witness, though sometimes JUST ONE. But somebody overcome, now, like the saints of old.


REVELATION 3:11Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast,

that no man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and

he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the

name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out

of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

This is the Message for Wesley and the Philadelphian church age. Verse 11 warns the believers not to slack off and risk to lose their crown by missing the day of Redemption. We seen already in 2 Timothy 4:8 that on that day the Lord, the righteous Judge will hand out the crowns of righteousness. The Lord also promised them His new name, someone asked Brother Branham, "what is that name?" He said we will know when WE get there.

4. What is the--the name of the--that'll be on the people of Revelations 3:12?

I--I don't know. Yeah. He said give them a new name. I--I--I don't know what that is. See? It'll be probably made known when WE GET THERE, but I--I don't know what it is now. See? See, He is going to do that. See? He give them a new name that--that they just knowed themselves. See?


157  There's a reward for overcomers. Press on, lily. If it's in you, lay aside the mud and everything else, and press towards the top. Yes, sir. "To sit with Me on My throne."


"Overcomers only, that overcome the beast, overcome his mark," that's Catholicism, Protestantism, denominationalism, "who overcome the beast, his mark, the letter of his name." "He'll have a right to the Tree of Life, to enter into the gates where nothing that defiles can ever go in." See? Think of it. Now, just a minute now, as we go just a little bit farther. Tree of Life will be for the overcomers only.


REVELATION 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my

throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Brother Branham said that is the highest reward anyone can get, to sit with Jesus in His Throne. But before that can take place, we will be severely tested at the time when the mark of the beast will be enforced all over the world. That will catch everybody, except those who overcome the beast, who are written in the Lamb's Book of life as explained in Revelation 13:8. Those are the living saints whose names are written in that Book, which is sealed with the 7 last, or 7 other, or 7 different Seals as Brother Branham calls it. That ends the church ages.

REVELATION 13:8 And ALL that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names

are NOT written in the book of life of the Lambslain from the foundation of the world.

That's exactly what it is, and the antichrist takes it all. And the Bible said that he deceived all, a-double-l, ALL upon the face of the earth whose names were not written under THOSE SEALS from the foundation of the world. Now, if the Bible said he did it, he did it.

172-1 {375} THE.FIRST.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

REVELATION 4:1 AFTER THIS I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven:

and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which

said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

2 And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set IN HEAVEN,

and one sat on the throne.

AFTER the church ages was over, and everything was come ready, made ready the setting of the 4th chapter here, the church ages was done. He had done left the earth. You see? Remember, the voice that spoke to him, behind him, in the seven golden candlesticks, the work was finished. And now that same voice was speaking up in heaven. What was it? He had done redeemed His people. His earthly work was finished, and He was in glory, calling to John, "Come up hither." Amen.


.we know we'll have to assemble for the last time, and we'll be called to ANSWER. I pray, Father, that if there be some here tonight who does not know You as their Saviour, that this will be the night that they'll make preparations for when that call of summons to COME ON HIGH to stand at the judgment, may they be READY TO GO, all washed in Calvary.

E-1 WHY -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 60-0309

To EVERYONE that hears this Word, John represented him. Amen John was the representative of the Blood of Jesus Christ, testimony of the Word. He was a witness of the baptism of the Holy Ghost, with a personal fellowship with Christ, and he represented the ENTIRE CHURCH; that, EVERY man or woman, boy or girl that ever believed in Christ and accept Him on the same grounds, he'll be summoned someday, "Come up hither," and be caught up before the tribulation. Remember, the tribulation time hasn't set in yet. This is being the time of setting of the JUDGMENT. John is being showed now what's going to take place AFTER the church age.


There are lots of quotes in the 3 sermons Revelation chapter 1, and chapter 2, and 3 to explain what will take place after the church ages, but these 3 quotes above is enough to understand it all plain and clear. In chapter 4 of Revelation, the Apostle John represents all the living saints on earth who one day will receive that call to "Come up hither." Then we must be ready and have that rapturing faith to leave this body and enter the waiting Theophany body, and be translated up to the Judgment Seat of Christ where we meet all the dead in Christ of all ages to be fully redeemed. John types us, and what he seen in the next verse is what we will see in reality.

REVELATION 5:1  And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne

a book WRITTEN within and on the BACKSIDE, sealed with seven seals.

2  And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy

to OPEN the book, AND to loose the seals thereof?

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. Oh, my. I wish I could get that to the people and could actually... Don't fail; don't--don't fail, please don't this time.


Brother Branham's interpretation of this Scripture is that there are 2 times 7 Seals opened at different time. This is once again solid Apostolic doctrine which is part of Malachi 4:6, and the same faith which was once delivered to the saints, which is therefore the same Word as yesterday, today and forever, as Hebrews 13:8 tells us.

As we can see in the Scripture and quote, according to Brother Branham's explanation, there are 2 sections of the same book, and both are sealed with 7 Seals or 7 Thunders. Seals and Thunders is one and the same thing, because it is the Thunder Voices which open the Seals. On the backside means when the first section is completed, and it is only completed after the last saint has received it, then after that, on the back of that, then the 7 Seals of the other section will be loosed, those 7 which are NOT written in the book, the Bible.

How else could we understand verse 2, how can anyone open a book first, and then loose the Seals of it? That is the wrong way around. The Seals keep the book shut, that is the purpose of the seals. The book can only be opened after the Seals are loosed. In 1963 in Jeffersonville, the Bible, the LITTLE book was opened by Jesus in the form of the Holy Spirit to the end-time Bride only. But on that great day of redemption in the 3rd Heaven, the Lamb's Book of Life, the GREAT Book will be opened by the Lord Jesus, the Kinsman Redeemer, the bloody Lamb to fully redeem all the gathered saints of all ages, and we will crown Him King of kings and Lord of lords.

But one of these days we're going to have to meet again into His Presence and give an account for all that we've done and said here on earth, when the GREAT Book is opened in the judgment.


And There, Father, we'll know when YOU COME and the GREAT Book is opened, we will understand then.

191  IDENTIFICATION -- TULARE.CA -- 64-0216 = February 16, 1964

MATTHEW 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with

his angels; and then he shall reward EVERY MAN according to his works.

REVELATION 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he

which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him

be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give

EVERY MAN according as his work shall be.

Many times, Brother Branham explains that Revelation 22:11 means that Christ has left the Mercy Seat. It will be at that time that He will gather all His saints together and judge, and confirm, and REWARD each one of us according to our works as they are recorded in the Lamb's Book of life. We will receive our new names on that day, and hear the new name of the Lord Jesus, and we will be placed in our exact position in the body of Christ.



According to "The Table," Brother Branham mentions the word Judgment 2521 times, and recently I took the time to look at every one of those quotes. 618 of those 2521 quotes explain that the Bride will appear at the Judgment, 277 say that the Bride will NOT go to the Judgment, and the remaining 1626 quotes pertain to the white Throne Judgment, or various other judgments. Many of those 618 quotes are twofold, they were made at altar calls, and depending on the reaction of the individuals, some were saved, others held back and missed it.

God, take away all folly. Make us sincere, knowing that we must answer at the judgment of God someday. And our attitude towards Him and His Word now, will 'termine our eternal destination.


You're going to attend the judgment conference. You're going to have to attend that one. Whether you ARE ready or whether you're NOT, that's a conference that we're all coming to; because the Bible said, "It was once appointed unto man to die, after that the judgment."


.when I come to Phoenix the first time, there has been many things happen since then, good and bad, that ALL GOES to the Judgment, in the hands of God.

2 SHALOM -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 64-0119

And every action, every word shall be brought into judgment when the accounting for our lives is given. There was no fear of God before the false vine and dearly shall they pay. Let all who name His Name, so live as becometh saints. We might fool the people but we will never fool the Lord.


Every soul that ever lived on earth, and can be held accountable, will have to answer to God for a responsibility. This will either happen at the Judgment of the righteous saints at the second coming of the Lord, or at the White Throne Judgment. As we have seen in the Bible, which is the Absolute, this Judgment of the Bride is a fact that no true believers will deny. Here is just a small selection of 10 quotes from the 618 which confirm this reality.

...we'll have to every one answer at the day of Judgment, for this meeting, each one. I've got to answer for it. I've got to answer for what I say. I've got to answer for what I do.

E-2  GOD.IN.HIS.PEOPLE -- LITTLE.ROCK.AR -- 50-0227 get our loved ones saved and in the Kingdom of God. For we don't know what time that we're going to be called to answer at that judgment, at the coming of the Lord Jesus.


... that this will be the night that they'll make preparations for when that call of summons to come on high to stand at the judgment, may they be ready to go, all washed in Calvary.

E-1  WHY -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 60-0309

He does not say make preparations for the resurrection and the changing of the bodies! No, but to get ready for the summons of Revelation 4:1 to be translated to meet the dead in Christ in Heaven for the second coming of the Lord, which takes place BEFORE the resurrection. There are many other quotes which further confirm that.

...let the Holy Spirit now speak to us in these next few words. God, I pray that there'll not be one missing at the day of the Judgment, that we'll all be there, and all be covered with the Blood...

E-14  FELLOWSHIP -- GREEN.LAKE.WI -- 62-0519

"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--at the Judgment seat of Christ. And you'll find out that in that room, the revelation coming from God.

568-2 {335}  THE.SEVENTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

Look at what Paul said in the Book of Hebrews, 11th chapter. Said, "They were sawed asunder, pulled apart; wandered about, in sheepskins and goatskins, and was in desert, and destitute and so forth; lives that this world is not worthy of." There you are. That life is worthy of the Gospel. How is mine and yours going to stand in the Day of Judgment, with men like that?


But if you can just realize that the very One that you serve, and separated yourself from the world to serve, the very One that you love; the very One that's going to stand in the Judgment, you in the Judgment with Him, to be judged, if His Presence can come right here and show that He's here!

187  JEHOVAH.JIREH.1 -- LOUISVILLE.MS -- 64-0402

To be judged, and confirmed, and rewarded as a blameless and faultless overcomer of sin and unbelief by my beloved Saviour and Kinsman Redeemer, and be told: "Well done my good and faithful servant, enter into the joys of the Lord," what could be greater than that? The next 2 quotes tell us again that the next thing will be the trumpet sound, and to be caught away to the Judgment, nothing else. The dead will rise after this Judgment.

How many out here now is Christians, and believe that you're anchored in Christ, and you're READY for the coming Judgment? And you'll be able, that, when the trumpet sounds, there won't be one thing to do but be caught away? It'll be done so quick, you won't have time to do NOTHING ELSE.


We know not what hour He may appear, or what hour He may summons us to answer up yonder at the Judgment. We don't know what hour He may, as it was, take our card from the rack, say, "It's homecoming time. You've got to go." God, help us to keep pure. Grant it, Lord.

179  SATAN'S.EDEN -- JEFF.IN -- 65-0829

But a real, thinking man THAT KNOWS his soul is going to Judgment, will filter his taste through the Word of God. "For all the Father has give Me will come to Me." And he'll live by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, which is the Waters of separation that separates us from sin.


This is Apostolic teaching by our Prophet, exactly with the Bible! This is according to the faith which was once delivered to the saints, and we are urged to contend earnestly for it. This is Jesus Christ, the Word, as they did preach it "yesterday" in the early church, and must be taught exactly the same today, or else they compromise Hebrews 13:8. But where are those "thinking men" who are supposed to live by every Word of God?

They see those quotes which say that the Bride is NOT going to the Judgment. There are 277 such quotes in the Message, we must ask the question, is there a huge contradiction in the Message? 618 quotes say YES, the Bride will meet at the judgment Seat of Christ, and 277 quotes say NO, no Judgment for her. What's more, in many places the "YES we do", and "NO we don't meet the Judgment" can be found in the same quote. Almost every time Brother Branham says that the Bride will NOT go to the Judgment, he quotes John 5:24

And as Thou, the great Master of Life, said, "He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Everlasting Life, and shall NEVER come into the judgment but has past from death unto Life." How sweet these words echo in our ears.

.And mankind are living as if they was going to live here forever, not knowing what minute we'll BE CALLED to answer at the judgment. What will we do then?

E-68  STAND.STILL -- SASKATOON.SK -- 57-0518

 "He that heareth My words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Eternal Life, and shall NEVER come to the judgment, but's passed from death unto Life." Grant it, Lord. They're Yours. I may never be able to shake those precious hands that raised in the air, but that day standing yonder, maybe before morning, when Jesus comes, and WE stand AT His judgment seat... O God, You said, "When I see the blood, I'll pass over you." That's the only thing that will be recognized on that day.


Does that not look like an outright contradiction? What do most ministers do in a situation like that? They take what they think is the easier way and just brush the other statements aside as if they do not exist, even so they are by far in the majority. But a true believer has no rest till this problem is solved. There are many more:

There are those here tonight that I'll NEVER LOOK AT them again until this sermon is played on God's great recording machine at the day of the judgment, and the great film will be shown, and there will be the hands up. Lord, they'll be a witness that they believed You and they want You. Now, You have said, "He that will come to Me, I will in no wise cast out. He that heareth My words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Eternal Life; and shall NEVER come to the judgment, but's passed from death unto life."


But we have the blessed promise of Jesus saying, "He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me has Eternal Life and shall NEVER come into the judgment, but is--has passed from death unto Life."

.and we'll become a great united church of the living God, every denomination together, every heart, all with one accord marching forward, undivided upon the principles of the Lord Jesus and upon His TEACHINGS, upon His Spirit that's bringing US TO that day of the judgment. May we confess our sins now and they go before us.

E-60  CONFERENCES -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 60-0228

Brother Branham says plain and clear that we will never come into the Judgment, and with the same breath he says just as plain and clear that with one accord and undivided God's Spirit will bring us to the day of Judgment. This is done on purpose to test us, to see what we will do, because we must not add or take away one word.

"Now, he that's ashamed of Me before the--the man, I'll be ashamed before him at the judgment, the Father, and the holy Angels. But he that will stand and confess Me before man, HIM will I CONFESS before My Father and the holy Angels." He came, but just now been given to me, God has put down on the Book of Life. "He that heareth My Word and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Eternal Life and shall NEVER come to judgment, but passed from death unto Life."


They was right here when it happened, and know that You have risen from the dead, and You're still alive, and know that WE'RE GOING to Judgment, to meet You at the Judgment Seat of Christ. And we want pardon, Lord. You said, in Your Own Word. I'll quote it, Father, just so that--that we'll know. You said, "He that heareth My Words," that's exactly what we been talking tonight, "and believeth on Him that sent Me," they do, "hath," present tense, "everlasting Life and shall NEVER go into the Judgment, but has passed from death unto Life." Now, that's Your Word.


There are at least another 30 sermons where Brother Branham says the same about going to the Jugment, and in another quote that we are NOT going to a Judgment. In those 30 sermons he says it in different quotes, but still in the same sermon. Here is a striking example from the first Seal, and the Seals are "Thus saith the Lord:"

How can they go through a trial to purify them when the--when the bleach Blood of Jesus Christ takes every symptom of sin and stuff away from you. And you're already dead, and your life is hid in Him through God and sealed in there by the Holy Ghost; what are you going to be judged for? Where you going to get your purification? What do you have to be purified from when you're perfectly in Christ, sinless? How... What's the judgment for?

134-4 {120}  THE.FIRST.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

No Judgment for the believer, we are purified by the Holy Ghost. But in the very next paragraph he says:

He might come tonight yet, and He might not come for twenty years. I don't know when He'll come, but whenever it is, I... My life might be over tonight, and then whatever I've done here is finished at that hour; I--I've got to MEET HIM in the judgment the way I went down here. The way the tree leans; that's the way it falls.



And we all know that Christ is coming for a elected church; that the rapture is the remnant (we know that), the elected church. The others goes through the JUDGMENT. But the elected goes first in the RAPTURE, because they cannot go into the JUDGMENT. Jesus said, "He that believeth on Me has Everlasting Life. He that heareth My words and believeth on Him that sent He has Eternal Life and shall never come to the judgment, but's passed from death unto life." Saint John 5:24.


And Jesus said (now, remember, Saint John 5:24), "He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath Everlasting Life and shall NOT come to the judgment." Then if he don't come to the judgment, where does he go? In the RAPTURE. See? 'Cause THAT'S the Judgment AFTER the RAPTURE. See? "Shall NOT come into the judgment, but has passed from death unto Life."

E-59  THY.HOUSE -- TIFTON.GA -- 61-0808

St.John 5:24, "He that will hear My Words and believe on Him that sent Me, hath." Why? Because he has believed, grace is a visited. "Hath come to Everlasting Life, and shall NOT come to the judgment (He'll GO BEFORE the judgment.), and not come to the judgment, but has passed.

169  THE.MESSAGE.OF.GRACE -- JEFF.IN -- 61-0827

...completely resting in the atonement that our Lord made for us, knowing this, that when the judgment comes, that we'll float above the judgment. We'll be TAKEN OUT of the world and will not have to stand the judgment, for our Lord promised us in St. John 5:24


St. John 5:24, "He that heareth My Words and believeth on Him that sent Me, has Eternal Life; and shall NOT come to the judgment; they'll NOT BE THERE when the judgment strikes the earth, but they have passed from death unto Life."


Here is the answer as the Lord has revealed it to me. As these 5 quotes clearly indicate, the Judgment Brother Branham speaks about in those 277 quotes, referring to John 5:24, means the great TRIBULATION. That is what he means when he says the Bride will NEVER come into the JUDGMENT. With other words, the Bride will go in the RAPTURE, and those who miss the Rapture will go to THAT Judgment, which is the great Tribulation.

JOHN 5:24  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.

In John 5:24, some Bibles say condemnation, others say judgment. As we understand now that the Judgment the Bride will never come to is actually the great Tribulation, we see another good reason why Brother Branham had to take a firm stand about this subject. Most of his closest associates were Pentecostal Oneness churches, and they believe that the Bride must go through the great tribulation for purification. This was a great hindrance because they stubbornly continued with that false doctrine, which also contradicted the opening of some Seals.

And--and how can men, great TEACHERS, teach, and looking at this Bible like this, and say that the Church goes through the tribulation period when there's not a Scripture in the Bible that says it. They haven't got one thing. A man come to me not long ago, said, "Oh, Sister McPherson taught that the church would go through the tribulation, 'cause we'll be shining lights in that time."


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.

194  ONENESS -- JEFF.IN -- 62-0211

"He that heareth My Word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath Eternal Life, and shall never come to the JUDGMENT, but's (or through the TRIBULATION period), but has passed from death unto Life."  That's it.


"He that heareth My Words, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath (present tense) Everlasting Life, and shall never come to the JUDGMENT." You'll never go through the TRIBULATION, never come into JUDGMENT, but you've passed from death unto Life. How beautiful.

181  A.SUPER.SIGN -- GRASS.VALLEY.CA -- 62-0708

In these last 2 quotes, Brother Branham makes it as clear as clear can be that when he quotes John 5:24, and says the Bride is NOT going to the JUDGMENT, he means that she is NOT going through the TRIBULATION.

Therefore, the Church misses the tribulation. I know that's CONTRARY to--to pretty near every teacher I ever talked to, but I--I don't mean to be dis--disagreeable. I--I mean to be your brother, but I--I must teach just as I can see it. If I don't, I can't put it together.


And how can a man say that the Bride of Christ goes into the tribulation? I CAN'T understand it. See? She's took away from the tribulation.

129-1 {79}  THE.FIRST.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

...after the Church is done gone. See? These things are the tribulation period. And I think it ought to be truly settled in every believer's heart that this Church never takes the tribulation period. You cannot put nowhere the Church in tribulation. I... You put the church there, but NOT the Bride.

401-1 {66} THE.SIXTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0323

No good teacher believes that the Church, the Bride... The church goes through the Tribulation, but NOT the Bride. The church goes through, for purification, sure, under the sixth seal.


Now I'm not here preaching doctrine. There is ministers on the platform here, that would disagree probably with This. Most ALL ministers believe that the Church goes through the Tribulation period, for PURIFICATION; I can't see it. The Blood of Jesus Christ is our purification; nothing cleaner, see. See? I believe that the church, the denominational church and the sleeping virgin, does go through the Tribulation, but not the Bride.

35  PERSEVERANT -- CHICAGO.IL -- 63-0802

Most ALL ministers Brother Branham had to deal with believed that the Bride has to go through the Tribulation for purification. This was a great hindrance in his ministry, some said: "Brother Branham is a Prophet of the Lord, but don't listen to his teaching, because it is wrong." How could a true Prophet have a wrong doctrine?

He's a great man, but he--he just can't agree with me. I appreciate that, of his sincerity. Though he don't just, one of these pushover, just have to agree with everything you say. He's got his own conviction, and he stands for it. I appreciate that. And he's a good man. Oh, I--I am not a teacher or scholar, at all, but this man is both teacher and scholar. But I--I can't agree with him, 'cause I don't see it. But, it doesn't pertain to salvation, it's pertaining to the Coming of the Lord. He sees that the Church has to GO THROUGH the Tribulation period, for PURIFICATION.

And now he said, "How you going to type that, if that Bride goes forth, goes up before She goes through the Tribulation period?" Said, "I got Scripture that shows you that the Church is in the Tribulation period." I said, "Just read the Sixth Seal, that's all, she is right there under the Tribulation period. But find out, just before that, the Bride is done gone. See? She is in Glory at that time. She has no purification." See? "He that believeth on Me has everlasting Life, and shall not come into CONDEMNATION or the JUDGMENT, but has passed from death unto Life."

54 + 56  HOW.CAN.I.OVERCOME -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0825M

Today is the calling-out of the Bride out of the church, the exodus, for the Rapture. For, the church truly goes through the Tribulation period, as you PENTECOSTAL brothers has PREACHED IT. I believe that. The church goes through it, but NOT the Bride. No, sir! Someone discussing that with me, not long ago, said, "The church will have to go through, for--for a PURIFICATION." I said, "That is true, because she rejected the Blood."

96  THE.TOKEN -- SHREVEPORT.LA -- 63-1128E

This is enough evidence that when Brother Branham strongly emphasizes that the Bride is NOT going to the Judgment, he means she is NOT going through the TRIBULATION, as it was taught almost everywhere where he ministered mainly among the Pentecostals. There are 618 quotes stating clearly that the Bride will appear at the Judgment Seat of Christ for our full redemption, BEFORE the resurrection of the dead in Christ.

This is perfectly in line with the teaching of the Pentecostal fathers and writers of the New Testament, which is the faith which was once delivered to the saints. That teaching of "yesterday" is just as true today at the end-time as it was at the beginning of the New Testament, as Hebrews 13:8 tells us, and constantly referred to by Brother Branham. So why do most likely as much as 90% of the worldwide Message followers do not believe Malachi 4:6, Jude 3 and Hebrews 13:8, and the greater majority of the statements of Brother Branham? It is because of false teachers in the Message, just like those Pentecostals, they are heading for the Tribulation.

Watch God's great revelation unfolding! By lack of this revelation is why we have so many different divisions among us, and so much mockery. So much division among us, is because the people lack that revelation. See, they lack that revelation, the TEACHERS.


I THESSALONIANS 4:16  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven

with a SHOUT, with the VOICE of the ARCHANGEL, and with the TRUMP

of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

17  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them

in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The Bible cannot contradict itself, that would make it useless. All over the world, the general interpretation of this Scripture is that at any time the dead in Christ will rise and appear to us, the living saints. Then we will be changed and after some time we are all raptured together to meet the Lord in the air, at the Wedding supper.

II CORINTHIANS 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the

mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

That interpretation of that Scripture has NO witnesses, but it contradicts ALL the other Scriptures which explain the coming of the Lord. That false explanation cuts out the 618 quotes plus many others of the Judgment of the righteous saints of all ages, and the rewarding for all the "overcomers," and the lifting of the curse from Genesis 3:17, and the day of our full Redemption. It renders Brother Branham's explanation of his experience behind the curtain of time as a false fiction story, even so it is 100% scriptural and confirmed by the Apostolic writers.

He said, "Then when Jesus comes, then we're... And He judges you for your ministry, then we go back to earth and take up bodies." (Well, I--I thought about it then; that's exactly the Scripture.) Said, "Then we go back to earth and take up bodies; then we eat. We don't eat here, neither do we sleep." Said, "We eat down there. But we go back to the earth."

382-4 {407}  THE.FIFTH.SEAL -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0322

There are lots of sermons where Brother Branham explains his encounter behind the curtain of time, but in at least 8 of them he says that AFTER this Judgment, THEN we go back to earth to pick up our glorified bodies.

ACTS 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it

is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of QUICK (living) and DEAD.

ROMANS 14: 9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he

might be Lord both of the DEAD and LIVING.

10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother?

for WE shall ALL stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

EPHESIANS 1: 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might

gather together in one ALL things in Christ, both which are in HEAVEN,

and which are on EARTH; even in him:

PHILIPPIANS 2:10  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things

in HEAVEN, and things in EARTH, and things UNDER the earth;

II TIMOTHY 4:1  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who

shall JUDGE the QUICK (living) and the DEAD at his appearing and his kingdom

Here are 5 witnesses, and lots more at the first part of this chapter which rectify that false interpretation of 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18. They confirm definitely that this Judgment of the righteous saints must be BEFORE the resurrection of the dead in Christ, because there are no more dead saints after they have risen from the dead. That resurrection of the dead is the RESULT of the Judgment, because at that formality the curse of Genesis 3:17-19 will be lifted that the dust of the earth can release the bodies for the resurrection. To be fully redeemed means that we go back to the same state as Adam and Eve were BEFORE the fall, then we are fully redeemed.

When, we see all these, great threefold revelation: God in Christ; Christ in the Church; the Kingdom coming. Adam and Eve REDEEMED back to the Garden of Eden.

It's a revelation. It's as Eternal as God's Word is Eternal. Look, but the threefold purpose of God's great mystery is revealed! God manifested in Christ; Christ manifested in the Church; in order to REDEEM the lost Eve back to the ORIGINAL CONDITION in the garden of Eden. Oh, my!


The threefold revelation is that first the Message is preached, which came from God, signified by His prophet, which is the SHOUT. Then in the latter rain Christ, the VOICE of the Archangel will get the preeminence in the Church when He will separate right from wrong as explained in Matthew 13:39-43. Then the TRUMP of God will call us the living saints up before the Throne to be gathered with the dead in Christ to be fully redeemed, and restored back to the same condition like Adam and Eve were before the fall. Then we will receive the same baptism as Jesus has, it will be added to the earnest before we come back to earth to pick up our glorified body.

Anybody can see from the Bible verses and the quotes in this chapter that all this is vital Malachi 4:5+6, Jude 3, and Hebrew 13:8 doctrine, but who is preaching it? They all mention those Scriptures constantly, but most of them speak ignorantly against it. Sermons are streamed and DVD's are send all over the world from Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and other places from Canada, and from New York, De Witt, Phoenix, Tucson, Homer, Johnson City, Hickory, Smiths, Townville, Jeffersonville, Highland Heights and lots of other places in the USA and many more. Is there one among them who sends out the real Message? Are there any who are not misled by that wrong interpretation of 1 Thessalonians 4:16+17, contradicting all the other Scriptures?

What about Moscow, Rotterdam, London, Krefeld, Bieselsberg, to name a few places of the 48 countries in Europe, their publications are also way off the mark, and the mark is the Bible. Here in South Africa, Durban, Cape Town, Johannesburg, and all the tens of thousands Message followers all over the country, and all those all over Africa and the whole world? Yes, the Judgment and full redemption of the righteous Bride before the resurrection of the dead in Christ, and the opening of the 7 last, or 7 other, or 7 different Seals on that day by the bloody Lamb is in the Bible, it is the true Malachi 4:5+6 and Hebrew 13:8 understanding to prepare for that great and dreadful day of the Lord. May whoever reads this chapter seriously consider it, at this late hour.
