Can a person understand the Seven Thunders before the Rapture?


“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), 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. I thank God for His Word; I thank Him for Jesus Christ. For without sending Him for the--the propitiation of our sins, we'd all be in a big muck of sin with no hope. But by His grace, His--His Blood cleanses all sin. Just like the drop of ink in a bucket of Clorox, you'd never find the ink again. When our sins are confessed, it's put in the Blood of Jesus Christ; they'll never be known again. God forgets them; they never was even done. And as long as that Sacrifice is laying there in an atonement for us, then that's all... That's it. See? We're not sinners no more; we're Christians by the grace of God.” [The Seventh Seal 63-0324E]

“There is a whole earth is to be purged. There will be such a thing that the moon, stars, and all nature will be purged. You see what it is? The earth is renewing herself, being purged, getting ready for the millennium. The millennium's coming up. And see, everything that's got any filth in it is to be purged during the Sixth Seal. Now, now, do you notice on the opening of this SEVENTH SEAL, it's also in a threefold mystery. This one I have--will speak and have spoke, that it is the mystery of the SEVEN THUNDERS. 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.” [The Seventh Seal 63-0324E]

“Did you notice when the Jews asked Him that? You know when we compared the Scripture here with Matthew 24 with the six Seals, the SEVENTH SEAL was left out; because, you see, Christ said only God Himself knowed, not even the Angels. No wonder, it wasn't even written. You see, they hushed; nothing take place then. 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. So I believe, to us who... If we don't know it, and we--we--it won't be knowed till that time, but it will be revealed in that day, in the hour that it's supposed to be revealed in. So the thing for us to do is to be reverent before God and serve Him, and do all that we know how to do, and live good Christian lives. 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.” [The Seventh Seal 63-0325A]

“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. But setting in my room, and I heard this--or not heard it, rather, but seen it unfold to this SEVEN THUNDERS. Now, that's as far as we can go right there. And now I trust that each and every one of you will serve God, and do that which is right, and love Him all your life and serve Him, and God will take care of the rest.” [The Seventh Seal 63-0325A]

“Something happened the other day. You read, or heard the tape, "the SEVEN THUNDERS," What Time Is It, Sir? See? It happened the other day. You know these things. The time is at hand, church. The time is at hand. Don't, don't, don't wait any longer. See? How do you know the Rapture is not going on all the time? First thing you know, it'll be past, one disappearing here and there. It'll be gone, the first thing you know. And you'll... Judgment will strike the world. You say, "Well, I--I thought this." "It's too late now." [God Hiding Himself In Simplicity 63-0412E]

“Well, the interpretation of that, of course, was given here at the church before it come to pass, that the--the time is now, that I believe, that the full revelation through the age of Luther, Wesley, and John Smith, Alexander Campbell, and different ones that's preached on the Bible, and then we got over in the Bible and showed that there would be a--a seventh angel's Message. And at the sounding of the seventh angel's Message, all the mysteries of God would be made known. Then come SEVEN mysterious THUNDERS. And now if it is that end age that we're living in, where we've come up through justification, sanctification, baptism of the Holy Spirit; and had signs, wonders, and all different things. And the gifts has returned to the church, such as, Divine healing, and prophecy, and--and speaking with tongues, and interpretations. And though it's been misrepresented, terrifically, but yet, that don't take away, there is a good one. There is a true one, of real genuine, a gift of speaking in tongues, that's always supposed to be in the Church.” [Standing In The Gap 63-0623M]

“God's great mystery of how, it's a secret. He kept it a secret. Nobody knowed nothing about it. Even the Angels didn't understand it. See, He didn't reveal it. That's the reason, under our SEVENTH MYSTERY, when the SEVENTH SEAL was opened, there was silence. Jesus, when He was on earth, they wanted to know when He would come. He said, "It's not... Even the Son Himself don't know when it's going to happen." See, God has this all to Himself. It's a secret. And that's the reason there was silence in Heaven for a space of a half hour, and SEVEN THUNDERS utter their voices, and John was even forbidden to write it, see, the Coming of the Lord. That's one thing He hasn't revealed yet, of how He will come, and when He will come. It's a good thing that He doesn't. No.” [Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed 63-0728]

“The Coming of the Lord is in mystery. We don't know when He's coming, how He's coming, but we know He is coming. See? And so was all the mysteries of God waiting for this last day. After He's already been completed, then He reveals and shows what He's done. Oh, my! Never gave His mystery in full. 206 It's just like this, comparing the SEVEN SEALS. Now, when God used Martin Luther for the coming out for that first church or that church age, and when He used John Wesley, and He gradually brought them out, and was revealing in them that church age, when we... when it goes back through the Bible now and find out. But in the last days, the reason that was such a tremendous thing, that He spoke of it here and showed those SEVEN THUNDERS.” [Christ Is The Mystery Of God Revealed 63-0728]

“Everyone has always come to me, said, "Brother Branham, them SEVEN THUNDERS that the voice thundered, and He said, 'Write It not, see, but close It up,'" said, "that'll be SEVEN THUNDERS that will be revealed in the last days, see, SEVEN THUNDERS that'll tell us?" Now, don't that sound real good? See? But watch what you're talking about when you say that. He said, "See that you write It not." See? These SEVEN THUNDERS utter their voices, see, and He said, "Don't write that, see, but It's to be sealed up in the Book until the last days. Now someone has been, many has been saying to me, and theologians said, "Brother Branham, if the Lord God..." Said, "If--if... With your experience, that the Lord has given you for His people," humbly saying this, said, "you would be eligible to write a--a Bible yourself, your Word, if God has manifested." I said "That might be true." See, he was trying to catch me. See? And I said, "But, you see, I couldn't do that." He said, "Why couldn't you? You have all the qualifications." I said, "But, you look, one word cannot be added or taken away." See? 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. That's what it was. See, it's still in the Word. You see, you can't get out of that Word. It won't leave the Word. And God's Spirit will never leave that Word. It'll stay right with the Word; blinding some, and open the eyes of others. It'll always do that.” [The Unveiling Of God 64-0614M]
