Brother Branham's teaching of the seven Thunders is probably the most controversial subject of the entire Message. Many believe that the seven Thunders are a hidden Mystery which nobody knows anything about it, and they can show quotes for that belief. Others have quotes explaining that the seven thunders have already been revealed, and it is absolutely true that lots of quotes for both sides are found in the Message.

There are many ministers all over the world who claim that the Lord has revealed the revelation of the seven Thunders to them, some say it is the seven virtues, another one claims that it is seven sermons preached by the Prophet after March 1963. Others say that one day 7 men from different countries will sound forth these seven Thunder mysteries, and lots more claim other interpretations to be the right and true revelation of the seven Thunders. But up to this time, we have not heard of one of these interpretations which really and truly accommodates ALL the quotes from the Prophet without any contradiction.

Some time ago, in March 2010, a Brother wanted to know what my understanding is of the seven Thunders. As I prepared an answer for him, I felt the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and a few things of this important subject of the Thunders became clearer and opened up further. At that time I felt attracted to the following quote. Could it be that now is the hour to fully understand it?

That's the reason today they can't understand this; it isn't the HOUR. No more we could understand these things until the time comes for it to be understood. Oh, my. Seven THUNDERS of revelation... May He show the Bride how to PREPARE for the great translation faith.

The result of this further revelation of the Thunder mystery was that I deleted the former chapter 10 and replace it with this new one. But before we go any further, let us see what the Bible says what a Thunder is. Sometimes the Scripture refers to a Thunder as the Voice of Almighty God.

I.SAMUEL.7:10 And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering,
the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but
the LORD
thundered with a great THUNDER
on that day upon the Philistines,
and discomfited them; and they were smitten before Israel.

II.SAMUEL.22:14 The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most
High uttered his VOICE

PSALMS.18:13 The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the
Highest gave his VOICE; hail [stones] and coals of fire.

PSALMS.77:18 The VOICE of thy THUNDER [was] in the heaven: the
lightnings lightened the world: the earth trembled and shook.

PSALMS.104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the VOICE of thy THUNDER
they hasted away.

When the thunder... Remember, a loud clapping noise of a THUNDER is the VOICE of God. That's what the Bible said (See?), a clap of thunder.
139-1 {146} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

These few Scriptures and the quote above make it very clear that the Voice of God is a Thunder. The thundering Voice of Almighty God uttered at Mount Sinai, and on Mount Transfiguration and other places, and the Bible tells us what it said. The Voice of an Angel is also a Thunder.

JOHN.12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard [it], said
that it thundered: others said, An ANGEL SPAKE to him.

Not one voice: VOICES, plural. What was it? God speaking to the church, reflecting Himself through the seven SPIRITS. When the true anointed of God speaks, it's the VOICE of God. To reject it is to remove the candlestick. See? "Voices," the voice of the Seven Church Ages (over here in the corner), the voices speaking with thunder and lightning.
116 REV.CHAP.4 PT.3 THRONE MERCY -- JEFF.IN -- ROJC 645-716 -- 61-0108

This quote refers to the 7 Spirits before the Throne as explained in Revelation 5:6, They are the seven Angels Who have anointed the church age messengers to deliver their Messages. Those seven Angels became the thundering Voices, speaking through the messengers to the people. When God puts His Words into the mouth of a Prophet, then his voice becomes also a Thunder.

JEREMIAH.5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because
ye speak this word, behold, I will make MY words in THY MOUTH fire,
and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

Now, I'm just your brother, by the grace of God. But when the Angel of the Lord moves down, It becomes then a Voice of God to you. Maybe it... If I offended you by saying that, forgive me. But I felt that might been resented. But I am God's Voice to you. See? I say that again. That time was under inspiration.
E-40 MY COMMISSION -- LA.CA -- 51-0505

And when she turned to obey what the prophet said do, then come the thunder from heaven that every man looks to hear. For there come a THUNDER out of the VOICE of the PROPHET that every sinner and every sick person longs to hear, "THUS SAITH THE LORD." How we long to hear it.
112 BE CERTAIN OF GOD -- JEFF.IN -- V-5 N-12 -- 59-0125

"THUS SAITH THE LORD" spoken by a true Prophet is a THUNDER, it is God Himself speaking through him, it is infallible. We have seen plain and clear that the thundering Voice of God can be spoken direct from Heaven, or through Angels, or by a Prophet. These facts are very important for us to understand as we continue with this very crucial subject of the seven Thunders.



And seven thunders right in the revelation here of Jesus Christ, is some MYSTERY. Does not the Bible say that this is the REVELATION of Jesus Christ? Why, there's some hidden mystery then of it. What is it? The seven THUNDERS have it.
40-3 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-11 -- 62-1230E

"Whosoever shall take one word out or add one word to It..." This is the complete REVELATION of Jesus Christ, and the Seven SEALS had the MYSTERIES hid of what it all was, and is supposed to open it in the last day, at the Laodicean age, at the end of time.
20-3 FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS -- JEFF.IN -- V-3 N-16 -- 64-0719M

Reading these two quotes together, we see that in March 1963 the seven Thunder Voices opened the seven written Seals. They show that the Thunders and the Seals is one and the same. Those Thunders is NOT something else besides the Seals, no, they are the Voices of the seven Angels Who revealed these previously sealed and hidden Mysteries of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

And those blasting the other morning that shook me plumb till I raised up in the air as high as this building, and that constellation of ANGELS, seven Angels, in the form of a pyramid... Is that them THUNDERS that's coming forth? Could it be?

And so I must not take what anyone says; I must--it must be inspired. And I believe that the Seven ANGELS who's holds these seven THUNDERS will grant it. See?
18-6 {103} GOD IN SIMPLICITY -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317M

There it is, just where it's already passed and you didn't know it. See? See if it is. If the ANGEL of the Lord will break them SEALS forth to us... Remember, it's sealed with them seven MYSTERIOUS THUNDERS. See?

Yes, the mysterious thundering Voices of those seven Angels broke and revealed those Seals in March 1963. The next quote says the same, the seven Angels Who formed the wig in the photo of the mysterious cloud, those seven thundering Voices revealed the mysteries of the seven Seals.

The reason that was such a tremendous thing, that He spoke of it here and showed those Seven Thunders and "Look" and "Life" my "Life" magazine there, packed that circle of cloud and light there that they could not understand and don't know it yet, but here telling, "Go there and wait for these mysteries to be revealed"
33-3 CHRIST IS THE MYSTERY -- JEFF.IN -- V-3 N-7 -- 63-0728

There's a Cloud hanging, twenty-six miles high. That's fifteen miles, or twenty, above even where vapor's at. They don't know what it's all going about, and they're trying to investigate It. And there, right under It, I was standing. And those seven Angels roaring out their VOICES, of those Seven SEALS, standing there.
42 LORD JUST ONCE MORE -- HOT SPRINGS AR -- V-20 N-10 -- 63-0628A

We see where the Prophet is saying that the circle of the cloud "showed the seven THUNDERS," and that the same cloud also shows those seven Angels who are the roaring VOICES of the seven Seals.

...there that seven Angels broke through from the sky and shook the place, till, rocks, weighing fifty or sixty pounds, rolled down the hillside. There stood seven Angels standing there, commissioned to go back and to bring these messages, and said ONE by ONE they would meet and TELL what happened. And it did exactly that way.
149 ABSOLUTE AN -- SHREVEPORT.LA -- V-17 N-10 -- 63-1201M

Seven Angels, just as clear as you're standing here, came sweeping down from heaven. The rocks in the mountains rolled out... He said, "Return to your home. Now, will be, each ANGEL will be ONE of the SEALS of the Seven Seals."
21 ONE IN A MILLION -- LA.CA -- V-18 N-1 -- 65-0424

We have seen where Brother Branham connects those seven Angels to the seven Thunders, and here he says that They are the Seals. Each Angel was one of the Seals, and each One did meet the Prophet in the morning in the denroom to open one of the Seals and tell him the mystery of it. Those seven mysteries of God which were revealed to him in those seven consecutive days, they were only known to Them. We see clearly here that the seven Thunders is not another mystery somewhere else as just about everybody believes, it's all included in the seven Seals.

And you remember, it was in the pyramid where the mysterious white rock was not written on. And the ANGELS took me into that pyramid of THEMSELVES, the mysteries of God KNOWN only to THEM. And now, they with the messengers that come to interpret that pyramid or that message of the secret of these Seven SEALS which lays with inside the pyramid.
578-1 {405} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

395. Have the seven THUNDERS which equals seven mysteries already
been revealed? Were they revealed in the seven Seals, but are yet--but are yet
not known to us as the thunders yet?
No, they WERE revealed in the seven SEALS; that's what the THUNDERS was ABOUT. They was to reveal... The seven thunders that had uttered their voices and no one could make out what it was... John knew what it was, but he was forbidden to write it. He said, "But the seventh angel, in the days of his sounding, the seven mysteries of the seven thunders would be revealed." And the seventh angel is a messenger of the seventh church age. See?
1161-Q-395 QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS -- JEFF.IN -- COD -- 64-0830E

Brother Branham seemed somewhat astounded that somebody believes that the seven Thunders is something separate from the seven Seals. For those who still doubt, the next quote spells it out indisputably that the seven Seals were opened by the seven thundering Voices of God.

Now, let us find the symbols. We found out what the thunder means. That's perfectly; we know that. See? The THUNDER was the VOICE of GOD when the SEAL opened.
155-4 {262} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318



This last quote has actually a twofold meaning. Every morning, one of those Angels came into the denroom where the Prophet was waiting, and the Angel's Thunder Voice opened one of the Seals to him alone. Then in the evening at the Tabernacle, Brother Branham was anointed to preach a small portion of that Seal to the public, and he became the Thunder Voice of God to us.

And there about twelve o'clock in the day the Holy Spirit just swept right down into the ROOM, and the whole thing just opened up to ME, and there it was...?... of this--of this First Seal being OPENED.
122-2 {35} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

And you remember on this we're just striking the highlights of it. Just... My, if--when I get in that ROOM there and--and that anointing comes in, if I could write down what He--what all goes on, I'd be here for three months on one of the Seals. So I just strike the places and let it out just what it would seem to be that wouldn't choke the people, but yet not enough to hurt them, but just so that believing it would--it'd season the thing.
187-1 {71} SECOND SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0319

You can't possibly hit all the things, if--'cause you could take that--just one of those Seals and stay, just--just bring it right through the Scripture, right down. See, it take months and months and months, and you still wouldn't have it, 'cause the--the Seal itself ties the entire Scripture from Genesis to Revelation, one Seal of it.
337-5 {33} FIFTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0322

If I could stand here and talk the things that's revealed in that ROOM, I tell you, it'd swing your heads around; but how you going to do it when you got a whole thing here.
467-5 {74} QA.ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

We see that the Sealsbook contains only a tiny fraction of the full Revelation of Jesus Christ which was opened up by those Angelic seven Thunder Voices of God in the denroom in March 1963. But we must also come to that full understanding of the Revelation of Jesus Christ which was revealed to Brother Branham in the denroom. When and where will that take place? The following quote tells us, we will come back to this Judgment Seat of Christ again a little later.

"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 (just like all the rest of them has)...
568-2 {335} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

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.

Once again we see in this statement that the seven THUNDER mysteries are contained in the seven SEALS, and the messenger of Malachi 4 will reveal them. We seen at the beginning of this chapter that a Thunder is the Voice of God, it is either spoken by the Lord Himself from Heaven, or by an Angel, or by an anointed Prophet of God. We know that "Son of man" refers to a Prophet.

But when all these seven THUNDERS MYSTERIES is to be made known, He has to come again as Son of man. That is the same Holy Spirit back into human flesh perfectly paralleling Sodom when God was manifested in a human being. See? And if He come then to the natural seed, Abraham, He comes now to the royal seed...

And I pray, heavenly Father, that that'll repeat again TONIGHT that WE could hear the VOICE of our LORD calling us, and calling us into--to service for Him, closer walks. We feel that we've heard HIS VOICE already in the opening of these SEALS, speaking that it's the last day, and the time is at hand.
525-1 {1} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

All we hear and know and understand is what we receive from the Voice of our Lord, speaking by and through the mouth of His Prophet. It is Almighty God revealing Himself through the human flesh of Brother Branham, telling us just as much as He wants us to know at this time.

Heavenly Father, with Your great Presence laying here, the great Holy Spirit, the One we have the picture of, the One that we read in the Bible, He's present right here now. He is revealing HIMSELF through human flesh.
522-3 {392} QA.ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

I ain't in the picture at all. I'm just--don't even want to be myself or nothing; it's Him. Let Him do the work. HE DOES the sounding; the trumpet's a mute. The VOICE behind it, one that gives it the SOUND.
483-2 {169} QA.ON THE SEALS

Notice, ONE THUNDER, seven messages that's been sealed up and cannot be revealed until the last day, at this age. See what I mean? Now, have you noticed the mysterious parts of this week? That's what it is. That's what it's been. It's been, not a human being, a MAN; it has been the ANGELS of the Lord.
560-1 {268} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

Brother Branham makes it clear that his thinking as a man is not at all in the picture. Nevertheless,God spoke through him, his voice is that one great Thunder revealing those previously sealed up messages which he received from those seven Angels. As he said in these quotes, that was the purpose why those Angels brought him back to Jeffersonville, to be that great Thunder voice.

Now, the VOICE of that great THUNDER and the mission that was brought here has been revealed that it--and proven that it was of God. Just think now. I knew not these SEAL, and they been revealed this week. Did anybody think of that? Of those seven Angels, being this being the message that was coming forth, them ANGELS bringing ME back here FOR THAT?
565-2 {307} SEVENTH SEAL THE

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?" I said, "No, sir, it would be adding something to It or taking something from It." It's all revealed in there, and the seven SEALS OPENED UP the revelation of what that was. See?
274 UNVEILING OF GOD -- JEFF.IN -- V-9 N-1 -- 64-0614M

...the end-time's here I'm thankful for this spiritual Food, Lord, the spiritual Food of the Seven Seals was promised to BE OPENED. "You say that'll be something different." No, no, you can't add one word or take... It's already in there. It's just hid; it's sealed. How many understands that, say, "Amen." See, you say, "Well, that's a Mystery that'll come forth." No, no, it's already written. You can't add one word to It or take one from It. See, it's already in there. It's just got to be revealed in the last days.
52-2 INVISIBLE UNION OF THE BRIDE -- SHP.LA -- V-2 N-15 -- 65-1125

The seven Thunders did “blast out” the revelation when those thundering Voices of those seven Angels opened up the seven written Seals. For seven days, each morning one of the Angels swept down into the denroom to the waiting Prophet to open up the mysteries of one of the Seals to him alone. Then in the evening, those Angels anointed him to preach some of those mysteries to us. As we know, Brother Branham was not allowed to preach everything He received in the denroom to us. It seems that he expected that more would be revealed to the public, he said:

Now, you'll just remember that there is something happening that I--I hope you're catching it. See? There--there--there's something happening. I just want to test this church one time and see if they could actually pick up something before it actually taken place.
231-5 {20} THIRD SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0320

Have you caught anything? I just wondered if you was. See? Yes, sir. I might not have to tell you then Sunday. Notice, notice. Wonderful.
359-4 {201} FIFTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0322

Now, if that don't tie that Bible together, I--I don't know what does. I--I--I--I can't say no more about it, 'cause that's it. Now, you just arrived. That's the truth. You take anything from there, you twist it. See? So it's just got to be that way.
360-4 {214} FIFTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0322

And you wait, if the Lord willing, tomorrow night, I want to show you a mystery that's been going all the time RIGHT HERE in this meeting. I doubt very much whether you've ever seen it or not (See?), what's--what's took place. It's been something that's laid right here before you, and I've watched each night for us--for it to rise, or somebody to say, "I see it." See? Don't turn it away, please.
442-6 {370} SIXTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0323

Does anybody know what the Prophet has seen, and what those mysteries are which were going on in those meetings? We don't know how much of his expectations of the greater revelation to be revealed “right here” was fulfilled. He was the only one who has seen those mysterious things he spoke about in the above quotes, while the public was blissfully unaware of what went on all around them. Then on Sunday morning came the anticlimax when he said:

And--and then also knowing that right among you, things are happening (See?) that I--I'm just... I--I know... I know you, that you don't see it...
But let me say this (See?), that you--you don't--you don't get it (See?), and you're not supposed to get it. So don't try to interpret anything. See? Don't try to put your interpretation to it. You only--you only get further away...
You just go on and live a good Christian life, 'cause you'll only wind yourself away from the real thing when you do it. See? You--you'll only wind your way again away from the thing. And all of you are conscious and know that there's something mysterious happening, and it is happening, and I know what it is. Now, I'm not saying that. It's the grace of God that lets me know that what it is. It's something that's tremendous, and it's gone right now, and there's not a way in the world for you to see it, and it's a--I... But so help me, with this Bible in my hand, I know what it is. It's been TOLD to you BEFORE, so just--just don't try to put any interpretation but just believe me as your brother (See?); we're living in a great hour...
Don't try to--to make any... You see, you do, you only make it a mysterious something and MESS the real program of God up. See?
458-4 {9} TO 459-2 {13} QA.ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

That unexpected change must have been a big disappointment for many believers who had high expectations that the opening of the seventh Seal would produce some great spiritual something. The quote above shows us that we do not yet have the full Revelation of Jesus Christ in its ENTIRETY. But the Prophet said that we have been TOLD IT BEFORE, which means that it lays in the Message already, nothing to be added, it will be revealed at the right time.

And when anybody thinks that he has those seven THUNDERS, if it don't compare with the rest of the Word, there's something wrong. It's got to come "THUS SAITH THE LORD," for this is the Book--this is the revelation of Jesus Christ in its ENTIRETY.
284-5 THE FOURTH SEAL -- JEFF. IN -- 63-0321

When, where, and how will it happen? The whole purpose of this website is to explain the coming of the Lord. The very foundation of that teaching is Brother Branham's explanation of Revelation 5:1, that there is one book with two sections, and both sections are sealed with seven Seals. There are two times seven Seals opened at different times, and without that understanding there will be confusion all the way. The second Sealsopening is also called the Judgment of the righteous.

"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, (denroom) the revelation coming from God (just like all the rest of them has), that them... One of the mystery of that Seal, the reason it wasn't revealed, it was seven THUNDERS that uttered their VOICES, and there it is perfectly, because nothing knows anything about it; wasn't even written. So we're at the end time; we are here.
568-2 {335} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

Here we see that at that time and place, there we will also get the same full revelation which was revealed in the DENROOM in March 1963 by the seven Angels. We know that some of it was revealed by the Thunders in 1963, but the part of which “nothing knows anything about” will only be revealed by the other thundering Voice at the opening of the seven LAST SEALS.

Angels don't know it; nobody knows when He's coming. But there'll be a... There'll be seven VOICES of these THUNDERS that will reveal the great revelation at that time...
Here now, we find that the Sixth Seal has been opened to us; we see it, and we know that this Seventh Seal cannot be broke to the PUBLIC until THAT HOUR arrives...

When the sixth Seal starts, then is the time when the Lord will come. There are many other quotes which confirm that fact. That is when we all meet at the Judgment Seat of Christ, the living and the dead, all the saints of all ages from Adam to the last one as Brother Branham was told behind the Curtain of time. There and then we all will see our Kinsman Redeemer coming from the right hand of the Father to take the Lamb's Book of Life to open the seventh Seal, which is the LAST seven SEALS. There the seven OTHER THUNDERS will wind up the great mystery in its ENTIRETY.

Now, there was some reason that God let this seven voices be thundered, because it must come (See?), for the... We find that Christ, the LAMB TOOK the--the BOOK in His hand, and He opened that Seventh Seal. But you see, it's a hidden mystery. No one knows it. But it--it's right along with what He said: no one would know His coming; they also would not know about this seven THUNDER mystery. So you see, it's connected together. That much we have a understanding of it today, because the rest of it is all unfolded, but this is NOT unfolded.
575-6 {392} SEVENTH SEAL THE

The next quote is a bit more specific about the same event. When the LAST one has come into the fold, then the Bride is sealed in with Christ. That will produce the sixth Seal, which is the Judgment Seal. Then the Lamb will come back to fully redeem and claim us, each one personally.

The Bride is sealed in with Christ. The LAST member has been redeemed. Sixth SEAL has produced itself. The Seventh SEAL brings Him back to earth. The Lamb come and took the Book out of the right hand of Him and set down and claimed what He owned, what He had redeemed. That right? It's always been that Third Pull.
50-3 SOULS IN PRISON NOW -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-22 -- 63-1110M



As I have mentioned at the beginning, the Thunders are the most controversial doctrines in the Message. We have seen already that Brother Branham said in some places that the Thunders have been revealed in the Seals, and in other places he says that nobody knows anything about it, and there is not a way in the world for us to see it. That looks like a contradiction. Remember, the Prophet said that the Thunder is the Voice of God when the Seal opened.

And now in this, it'll dovetail right into these seven seals that we're coming to speak. And the seven Seals that we're trying to speak of when I come THIS TIME, is the seven WRITTEN Seals. And these seven seals, as you know, is JUST the manifestation of the seven Angels of the seven churches. But there are seven OTHER SEALS that's on the back side of the Book, that's outside the Bible.
30-1 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-11 -- 62-1230E

"This time" was March 1963. We understand that those seven written Seals were opened by the thundering Voices of the seven Angels, and revealed to us by the Thunder voice of the Prophet. But there are seven OTHER Seals to be opened at a later time by another thundering Voice of God. We understand that is still a future event, nobody knows what they are going to say at that time.

Did you notice that when the seven seals, that followed the seven church ages; when the first seal was opened, that there was a THUNDER? The first seals in the Book was opened, there was a thunder. Would not the first seal on the outside Book open the same way? God doesn't change His program.

And then if this is a continuation for the sounding of these last trumpets or these LAST seven THUNDERS that's coming forth, the mysteries, the LAST SEALS, it will have to compete--or compare with the rest the Scripture. And if them first ones in there opened with a blast of THUNDER, the second ones will too, that's on the backside.

In the quote above, the Prophet spells it out as clear as clear can be. The LAST seven Thunders, the second ones, will (future) reveal the mysteries of the LAST Seals. Those are the Thunders we know nothing about, we will hear them when we will be gathered there on the day of Redemption.

The THUNDER, the voice of the Creator has uttered it. Now, He ought to know what's there. Amen. Oh, my. But think, now he wrote this, but when he started to write those OTHER seven THUNDERS, he said, "Don't write it." He'd been commissioned to write everything he seen. But when these seven thunders over in Revelations 10 uttered, he said, "Don't write them at all." They're mysteries.
141-5 {165} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

I have come here for the purpose of teaching the last vials, last seven vials, and the last seven trumpets, and the LAST seven THUNDERS of the Book of Revelations, tying them together in this hour that we're now living to FOLLOW the opening of the Seven Seals, the Seven Church Ages.
16 GOD OF THIS EVIL AGE -- JEFF.IN -- V-4 N-9 -- 65-0801M

The LAST seven Thunders FOLLOW the seven Thunder Voices of the seven Angels Who opened the seven written Seals in March 1963. It is as simple as reading the newspaper, the elect will see it as sure as anything. These facts also straighten out the "controversy" of the next 2 quotes.

Look where the VOICES was in the thunders, not in heaven, on EARTH. The THUNDERS never uttered from the HEAVENS; they uttered from the earth.
38-2 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-11 -- 62-1230E

The seven thunders in HEAVEN will unfold this mystery. It'll be right at the COMING of Christ, because Christ said no one knew WHEN He would return.
575-4 {390} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

Where exactly did the Angels utter Their Thunder Voices on earth? In the denroom. But the other Thunders will unfold that great mystery in Heaven, yonder in Glory, where we will meet the Lord at His second Coming. I have personally experienced were ministers insist on the first or the second quote and ignore the other one as if it does not exist. In the next two quotes we see the same. In 1963 the seven Angels uttered those Thunders, but at the end it will be the bloody Lamb Who will reveal those seven last mysteries to all the gathered saints of all ages, from Adam to the last one.

And so I must not take what anyone says; I must--it must be inspired. And I believe that the Seven ANGELS who's HOLDS these seven THUNDERS will grant it. See?
18-6 {103} GOD IN SIMPLICITY -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317M

He took the Book out of the right hand of Him that set upon the throne. Who was it? The--the Owner, the original Owner that had the Book of Redemption in His right hand, and NO ANGEL, no ANGELIC being, NOTHING else could take the place. And this bloody Lamb walked out and took the Book out of His hand. What was it? Brother, this is the most SUBLIME thing in the Scripture, a act, that NOT an ANGEL, not nothing could do it, and the Lamb come and took it from the right hand of Him that set upon the throne.
102-4 {238} BREACH THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317E

The human mind can only stand so much. See? And when you get to a spot where you set a HOUR numbed with the Presence of God, and a Pillar of Light hanging there before you, you--you--you can't stay there too long. You see? The human being can't stand it.
462-3 {36} QA.ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

Another point is how long the Thunders uttered Their Voices. Brother Branham spend about a hour each day in the presence of the Angel, the Pillar of Light. That adds up to about 7 hours altogether for that week in 1963. But the other Thunders which open the LAST seven Seals, they will be much shorter. John heard all seven Thunders spell out something in a row, all seven together at once, it was short enough that he could remember what he heard, and write it down if he would have been allowed to do so. The sounding of those Thunders could not have been longer than two minutes.

Seven [Brother Branham knocks six times on pulpit--Ed.] just right down the row. Seven THUNDERS uttered straight TOGETHER like they're spelling out something. Notice, at that time, John started to write, and He said, "Don't write it." Jesus never spoke of it. John couldn't write it. Angels know nothing about it.
558-2 {255} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

REVELATION.10:3 And cried with a loud VOICE, as [when] a lion roareth:
and when he HAD cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to
write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those
things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

After the seven Seals of the "little Book" (the Bible, the Word written within) were opened in March 1963 to the Prophet in the denroom by the Thunder Voices of the seven Angels, he became the one Thunder Voice to reveal to us as much as he was allowed to "cry out" like a roaring lion. That roaring cry (or shout) has to go to every nation, kindred and tongue till the last one has received it, and is saved and sealed unto the day of Redemption. Then he HAD cried, after the LAST one has received the Message, then the seventh Seal will be opened, which covers the LAST seven Seals.

Now, what this great SECRET is that lays beneath THIS SEAL, I do not know. I don't know it. I couldn't make it out. I couldn't tell it, just what it and just what it said. But I know that it was them seven THUNDERS uttering themselves right close TOGETHER, just banging seven different times, and it unfolded into something else that I seen. Then when I seen that, I looked for the interpretation that FLEW across there, and I COULDN'T make it out. That's exactly right, friend. See? The hour isn't quite yet for it, but it's moving into that cycle. See? It's coming up close.
567-1 {322} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

ISAIAH.62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all
kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a NEW NAME, which
the MOUTH of the LORD shall name.

And Jesus, His Name on earth was Redeemer, Jesus. When He was on earth, He was the Redeemer; that's true. But when He conquered death and hell, and overcome them, and ascended on high, He received a NEW NAME. That's the reason they holler the way they do and don't get nothing; it'll be revealed in the THUNDERS. See?
158-3 {283} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

Not the mouth of an Angel, or a anointed Prophet, but the mouth of the Lord Himself shall name HIS NEW NAME, and our new Names also. Jesus means Jehovah Saviour, and that's what He is, and plain common sense tells us that His Name has to remain Jesus till the last saint is saved and sealed unto the day of our full redemption. Then we will be translated to meet the dead saints of all ages before the Throne, the Judgment Seat of Christ, and there the Thunders will reveal our NEW NAMES at the opening of "that Seal yonder" (the seven LAST Seals) over there. I wonder how many believers know what Brother Branham means when he says "When we get there," or "that Seal yonder," or "reveal to me my name over there" as he explains in the next two quotes?

4. What is the--the NAME of the--that'll be on the people of Revelations 3:12?
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.
471-3 {98} QA.ON THE SEALS -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324M

I'm trusting I--I'm one of those that's going to find my NAME tonight behind THAT SEAL yonder that was put on there from the foundation of the world. Something struck my heart and I'm standing, Lord, is it me? Are You calling me? I want You to reveal to me my NAME OVER THERE.
226-4 {359} SECOND SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0319



We found out what the THUNDER MEANS. That's perfectly; we know that. See? The THUNDER was the VOICE of GOD when the SEAL OPENED.
155-4 {262} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

This most important quote has been missed and overlooked, myself included, till just recently. It is only now that we find out that the Thunders are the Voices of God which open the Seals. It is NOT something else besides the Seals, the Seals are opened by the thundering Voices. We have seen that there are Thunders which have been revealed already, and seven other Thunders which are still a closed mystery because they will utter Their Voices at the second coming of the Lord. Two times seven Seals are opened by two times seven Thunders at different times. Without that vital understanding, confusion will lead the people all the way into the Tribulation, because they will miss the day of our full Redemption when the seven LAST Thunders will reveal our new names.

And the whole thing here, the Seven SEALS got the MYSTERIES of God from the foundation of the world all sealed up in there, and revealed by Seven DIFFERENT Seals; that if God willing--let Him--let us pull back THESE Seals and look down through the Book and find out what it's all about. See? Oh, I hope we have a great time.
90-6 {145} BREACH THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0317E

That is exactly what the Sealsopening in March 1963 was all about. To pull back the Seals of the "written Word," to look down through the Bible and learn how to prepare for the opening of those seven DIFFERENT Seals by the Kinsman Redeemer, at the Judgment Seat of Christ. In the next quote we see that the Prophet calls THOSE seven SEALS also THOSE THUNDERS, because it is one and the same. They come AFTER the first seven Seals, when time for salvation has run out.

And now, THESE Seven Seals that this Book is sealed with, and THOSE Seven SEALS... Now... And then AFTER these Seven Seals are completed, we find in Revelations 10 there was seven mysterious THUNDERS that John was commissioned to write but then forbidden to write THOSE. And at the time of THOSE THUNDERS, we find Christ, or the Angel come down with a rainbow, and put His feet on the land and sea and swore that time had run out at that time.
283-5 {35} FOURTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0321

Brother Branham's interpretation of Revelation 4:1 tells us that the living saints will be summonsed and translated to meet the dead in Christ before the Throne of God to partake at the opening of the seven LAST SEALS at the second coming of the Lord. This is NOT the generally known Rapture, this Rapture is for the living saints only, this is one of the greater mysteries of the Message.

"Time shall be no more," and seven THUNDERS throwed their voices out. What if it is something to let us know how to enter in to the rapturing FAITH. Is it?
46-1 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-11 -- 62-1230E

Is that really them seven THUNDERS fixing to utter out something that the little group that He's gathered together will receive a rapturing FAITH to go in the rapture when He comes; for we'll be changed as quick as those Angels come.

And I believe that through those seven THUNDERS will be revealed in the last days in order to get the Bride together for rapturing FAITH; because what we got right now, we--we wouldn't be able to do it.
128-2 {75} FIRST SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0318

The seven Thunder Voices of the Angels Who opened the seven written Seals in 1963 revealed this mystery of the translation of the living saints in order for us to have that rapturing faith. We will need more faith than any other age for this Rapture, chapter 12 at this website explains this most important translation. The Prophet said that those seven Thunders will give us this rapturing faith, and this rapturing faith is laying in the Messages. That explains once again that the Thunders opened the seven Seals, and that Thunder revelation of the Seals gives us the this rapturing faith.

But just the same, God's moving right on, bringing in the rapturing FAITH for His Church. That's right. So tonight I represent that faith, the faith that was once delivered to the saints, in the way of a Divine gift.
27 GOD HAS A PROVIDED WAY -- LVL.KY -- V-25 N-9 -- 54-0404

And now, I believe she's ready to strike that final climax yonder to bring forth a faith that'll RAPTURE the Church into glory (It's the truth.), and She's laying in the MESSAGES. We're really at the end time.
35-3 ABSOLUTE THE -- JEFF.IN -- V-3 N-18 -- 62-1230M

And I want you to get built up now in the--the holy Oracles of God, in the faith, the faith of this hour. The faith, it's going to take MORE FAITH than ever was in any age, for this has to be rapturing FAITH, be taken up.

The "mechanics" for that rapturing faith is explained in many parts of the Message, but we will need a greater anointing at the end-time to manifest that great faith. It will take those few of us who will be ready to meet the dead in Christ before the Throne of God as explained in Revelation 4 and 5, to witness the coming of the bloody Lamb to open the LAST seven Thunder mysteries to all of us.

He's got to be everything the same except the corporal body. Now, that BODY, when It comes, TIME shall be no more, how many knows that? Yes, when Jesus comes in His literal Body... But He come now in the form of the Holy Ghost.
E-57 HEAR YE HIM -- PHOENIX.AZ -- 57-0310E

He come down from heaven, because the mystery's all finished. And when the mystery's finished, the Angel said, "TIME shall be no more," AND seven THUNDERS throwed their voices out.
46-1 IS THIS THE SIGN OF THE END SIR -- JEFF.IN -- V-2 N-11 -- 62-1230E

...and swore by Him that lives for ever and ever, that TIME should be no more when these seven VOICES uttered, seven THUNDERS uttered their voices. And He told them, "Don't write, but seal it." And we found it was on the back side of the Book.
77 EVENING MESSENGER -- MESA.AZ -- V-8 N-5 -- 63-0116

We want to receive rapturing grace. We want to be able when that mysterious THUNDER thunders out YONDER, and the Church is taken up, we want to be ready to receive it...
225-6 {350} SECOND SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0319

...and swears by Him that lives forever and ever on the throne, that TIME shall be no more. And when He takes this oath, seven THUNDERS utter their voices...
235-1 {39} THIRD SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0320

Angels don't know it; nobody knows when He's coming. But there'll be a... There'll be seven voices of these THUNDERS that will reveal the great revelation at that time.
575-6 {392} SEVENTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0324E

The Lord Jesus' body is setting at the right hand of the majesty. When He comes, TIME'S no more when that BODY returns to the earth. But His Spirit's here.

He put one foot on land and one on the sea and swore by Him that lives and ever and ever, that TIME shall be no more. And when He did, Seven THUNDERS uttered their voices.
19-5 FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS -- JEFF.IN -- V-3 N-16 -- 64-0719M

The following Scripture is such a blessing to me, it puts this whole subject of the Thunders into a nutshell. First the Thunder Voice of God, the shout of the Message, spoken by the mouth of His Prophet William Branham. It is still going on, it must go to every nation, kindred and tongue till it reaches the ends of the earth, and the last predestinated saint is saved and sealed unto the day of Redemption. Then, AFTER that, God thundereth again in Glory, and His Voice will "unseal" that great mystery beneath those seven LAST Seals, which we can only comprehend at that time.

JOB.37:2 Hear attentively the noise of HIS VOICE, and the sound
[that] goeth out of HIS MOUTH.
3 He directeth it under the whole heaven, and his lightning
unto the ENDS of the earth.

4 AFTER it a VOICE roareth: he thundereth with the voice of his
excellency; and he will not stay them when his voice is heard.
5 God thundereth marvellously with HIS VOICE; great things
doeth he, which we cannot COMPREHEND.

From Adam to the last one, all the saints of all ages will be gathered there to see and hear and "comprehend" the mysteries which that marvellous thundering Voice of God will reveal to us. The following quote tells us what effect it will have on us, we will become the Word of God just like Jesus was in His earthly ministry. At that time we will be fully adopted, we will be the manifested sons of God with the full Power of God upon us. I wonder if we will have time to use that Power before the Millennium, but we know that Moses and Elijah will use it during the great Tribulation.

Wait till them seven THUNDERS utter their voices to that group who really can take the Word of God and hand it there. It'll slice and cut. And they can close the heavens; they can shut this or do that, whatever they want to. Glory...
They could call for a hundred billion tons of flies if they wanted to. Amen. Whatever they say's going to happen, because it's the Word of God coming from the MOUTH of God.
304-1 {179} FOURTH SEAL THE -- JEFF.IN -- 63-0321

There are a few more quotes in the Message about the Thunders, but they would not add anything or change anything of this understanding on this most important subject. Those who insist that the Thunders is something different from the Seals will call this chapter a false doctrine, but those who are flexible will find it enlightening. I believe that the quotes and the Scriptures in this chapter speak for themselves, they mean what they say and say what they mean. My prayer is that God will richly bless everyone who will read and study this subject, because it is very important to understand it to be able to get ready to partake in that greatest event in human history, as the Prophet calls it.
